Chief coach of the Azerbaijani “Karabakh” Gurban Gurbanov commented on the victory of his team in the match of the fourth round of a group round of League of European Poltava “Vorskla (1:0).
“In addition to an important victory, I was satisfied with the game. Team the entire match fought, tried to play better. Grateful to my players. “Vorskla” I wish you success in the future. I think today the concentration of u guys was better than in Baku. It would be wrong of me to say now that in the first match we had to win. But there came for three points but failed.
Back in Baku, I was told that after the first match opponent will know better. In both games we played to win. In Poltava were found in the Tank – no. I hope that in the future will again be successful.
In each game, changes happen in the composition. Today we were forced to make such changes. Besides, I wanted to release a more finished players. And Badawi Huseynov, and Mahir Madatov last time play under heavy loads. It needs to be, so I let in the centre of defence Jakub Jing and Rasad sadiqov. In the next match too, probably will change. There were small nuances that played a role. At the end of the match I was planning to have a third replacement, but saw that it is not necessary. Game of Hannes Halldorsson was satisfied, as the other guys.
I think the odds of our teams for second place is more complicated, as sporting played away against Arsenal in a draw. In any case, we will fight to the end.
Football is a team game. It would be wrong to speak about any components that were not in Baku. Guys today have fulfilled these guidelines and expressed their sporty nature,” quoted Gurban Gurbanov ua-football.com.
