Zeljko BABIC head coach of the BGK:
– Congratulations to “Dinamo” for the victory. Today, they were stronger. In the first half, we failed to played well in defense. But when you’re playing against such a serious team as “Dinamo” and make mistakes in the majority – to win hard. “Dinamo” is playing better. We have a problem with the composition. As soon as I made a change in the team – as we started losing the game. The “Dinamo” had no such problems. They can afford to make changes and maintain the same level.
We will train harder. There will be more games and there will be opportunities to beat “Dinamo”. We look forward with optimism.
Vitaly CHEREPENKO goalkeeper BGK:
– I would like to congratulate Dinamo on their victory and wish them good luck in the Champions League matches. As for today’s match, in the first half there was passion, and struggle. In the second half we failed at the start and gave “Dinamo” five goals lead. They held to this advantage to the end.
Now our team has a lot of injuries, we can not train at full strength. This is one of the reasons why we do not show the game that is expected of us by our fans, and the management … We will work and fix the situation.
Boris DENICH, head coach of Dinamo:
– The match was a real derby. You saw that both teams were tactically well prepared. But the best line of both teams would call security. In this game all the individual skills of the players decided to “Dinamo”.
Denis RUTENKA, right winger, Dinamo:
– As always – the game was difficult. More than half of the game was played in stiffness for both teams. Only when we came off a bit in the lead in the second half – it was made easy. Psychologically, the attack was easier to play. Overall success.
