Krasnodar head coach spoke to the media after the game:
- We played for victory, our team placing forced us to win in order to promote to the Europa League. We realized the match vs Anji would be hard-fought as we played the Russian Cup final two days earlier. It was hard, but we must go on.
On the whole, we deserved the victory and showed good football.
The most important is that we had set two tasks in the Russian league: to be among the top six and challenge for the title, and to win the Russian Cup. We`re still chasing for the domestic league title.
