Oleg Danchenko: "I`m convinced we`ll gain much in the season"

Anji newcomer Oleg Danchenko spoke with the club's press service before the match with CSKA Moscow.
- I'm very happy to be in Anji. I feel only positive sensations. Our squad has got close to the fighting and I’m sure that we will achieve a lot in the season.
- A new stage begins in your professional career. How unexpected for you was the invitation to Anji? And who was the initiator of the transition?
- I learned about the interest of Anji from the leadership of the Donetsk Shakhtar. They also offered me the option of continuing a career.
- How long did you think?
- No, the decision was made almost immediately and I am glad that I moved to a club like Anji. I am ready to play, give my best in every match and continue to progress.
- It's no secret that in Shakhtar you had a tough competition for a place in the squad.
- Yes, I understand that at the moment it will be extremely difficult to break through and win a place in the basis of Shakhtar. Therefore, I decided to go on lease for a year to have a gaming practice, prepare well, go through the level of the Russian Premier League.
- How did they take you on the team?
- Great. We have a friendly team, professional staff, responsive leadership. Everything is on a high and professional level. We have no problems with it.
- Did you perform, according to tradition, some number, song or dance for the first meet?
- No, but I hope, something will be performed soon. And maybe on the football field. I think that the best number will be a good game in the "Anji".
- How do you work with head coach Alexander Grigoryan and can you note his distinctive qualities?
- The impressions are positive. And from its distinctive features I would like to note the determination. He constantly tries to tell us how to properly play, in each episode show the result and be one team. Alexander Vitalievich helps us very much tactically. And this is very good, because not every coach can scrupulously explain how to act in this or that episode, how to rebuild, defend and attack. I hope that every day we will improve our tactical and gaming skills. A mentor believes and helps us.
- Many people value universalism in you. In which position do you feel most comfortable?
- I have been on the right defender for four years, but I can play an attacking midfielder on both flanks. Therefore, there are no problems in this regard.
- What do you know about your new team and did you ever hear about Anji?
- Of course, I hear the name of the club. The honor of the team was defended by famous football players of world level. Take at least the same Willian, who moved to Anji from Shakhtar. I think they did not play for such a club in vain. Now the situation is different, but FC "Anji" is still developing and is systematically moving forward.
- Did you follow the Russian Premier League earlier?
- Of course, I was interested. In addition, my teammate on Shakhtar, Philip Budkovsky, who played in Anji, said that there was a strong championship, good conditions. Therefore, you need to do your best to succeed.
- Did you get acquainted with Makhachkala or the Caspian Sea?
- No. We are systematically preparing for a responsible match with CSKA, so there was simply no time for it. But I think in the near future I will get to know both the city and the Caucasian cuisine.
