Roberto Carlos: “We did not play to our full potential”

New signing of Anji Roberto Carlos gave an interview for the official website after the Cup game between Anji and Zenit.

- For me it was a little uncomfortable to play on an artificial pitch. I have never before played on such a field, so I had to adapt during the game. We have a very young team, we haven’t had much time together in training, so we still need time to get to know each other better. Also today we were left without the help of Zhusiley, Kebe and Angbva, who no doubt would have strengthened the squad. We must also not forget that we played the reigning Champion of Russia. Zenit is a very strong team, with many great players who have been playing together for many years.

- What can you say about your game?

- I did not play the way I was supposed to play. I understand that the coach expects more from me and I will try to improve my form from game to game. At the same time I believe we could have earned a point in such a game. I think that the referee in a few episodes was very harsh towards us.
