– It was an emotional match, the two teams are playing the fourth round in the second part of the season at a good level, they are playing fighting games. Today both could win.

I would also like to say thanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We understand that thanks to our soldiers we play football. We are trying to develop. Yesterday, the coaching staff and management played a match with border guards in Uzhgorod. They were at the match today, I asked who they were rooting for. They said that they support Ukraine.

– What are your team’s goals for the season?
– We train, among other things, also children, the younger generation, we want to give them the opportunity to develop. Young players came out, the task is to play good quality football. But today there are a lot of messages that football is life, a lot of struggle. So we are fighting. The task for the season is to show good football and achieve results.
