Yuri Zhirkov and Rasim Tagirbekov commented on the match Spartak – Anji.
Yuri Zhirkov, “We lacked final pass”
- Spartak took the initiative from the very start of the game. We hoped for counterattacks and sometimes lacked the final pass. In the end of the first half we let in two goals and that told on us.
- Did the artificial pitch anyhow redound on the play?
- As I know all players tried that pitch and was familiar with it. I think no, it did not.
Rasim Tagirbekov, “We had serious preparations”
- We had serious preparation for the match. Spartak in some degree was more active in running. The opponent`s attacks were coordinated and as the result of it – we lost.
