The head coach of Shakhtar Mircea Lucescu has called for a press conference before the match of the group stage of the Champions League against real Madrid.
– Response teams, which lost the following matches are different. Usually teams play aggressive, trying to prove that it was an accident. Although there were return cases. I think the defeat has affected the real and tomorrow the team will come out motivated, with a desire to prove to the management and fans that the defeat from Barcelona was random.
– What is your opinion about the situation of Benitez in Real life?
– I don’t want to comment on the situation, which is now in the Real world. I’m off the team, and don’t know what’s going on. Before losing to Sevilla and Barcelona, they were at a high level, but after two defeats arrows flew in coach. I think the leadership would be able to get through this time, and will not hold the changes even more may affect the team.
– In Madrid, Shakhtar looked decent, but lost. What you need to change the team tomorrow to get the result?
– First of all, you need to get rid of the bugs that were in Madrid. We then created a moment in the 3rd minute and could score, but then an error occurred Pyatov, after which the team lost confidence. I would not want to remember the penalty spot after being hit in the back… Then there was the removal Stepanenko, but our players played decently even in the minority.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s game. It is clear that we have, and there are real problems, but I would like to see that game in the performance of our players, they showed in the match against malmö.
Unfortunately, due to two errors of the judge, we lost Srna and Kucher, who is suspended for tomorrow’s match. We will have to build a game without these experienced players.
– Who will replace Srna and Kucher? And who will be wearing the captain’s armband?
– Teixeira will be the captain, but with regard to the first question, I haven’t decided yet.
– After the match against PSG, when bright the game Shakhtar did not score, did you conclusions?
I’m more worried about not attacking and defensive actions of the team. When the defense commits stupid mistakes, and attacking players more confident in myself. Unfortunately, in the games against PSG and real Madrid after the errors of players and referees, some players give up. I’m sure we’ll beat real Madrid, it is important to avoid mistakes in defense.
