Lucescu is rigidly resectional the main culprits of the failure of “Zenit” in the match against Anderlecht
Main Zenit coach Mircea Lucescu praised his team in the first match of 1/16 final against Anderlecht. We will remind, the meeting ended with a rather unexpected defeat of Zenit with the score 0:2.
Lucescu admits that the opponent deserved to win. Anderlecht,
according to the Romanian guru, showed a greater desire, asked a good rhythm game
that could withstand. Not without a little bit luck after a quick goal
the Belgians scored after a blunder of the defender of Zenit’s Branislav Ivanovic,
“I’m sure things would have been different if not for the stupid
the goal,” says Mister. In addition, he expressed regret that his team
not implemented the moments that took both first and second halves.
The Romanian coach believes the already mentioned defender Ivanovic
one of the main culprits for the defeat of “Zenith”. According to Lucescu,
Branislav probably just not adapted to the field .
“It was evident his desire to play, but
unfortunately it is not adapted to our game, and to a field that was
today,” – said Lucescu.
Also, the coach walked in some other players
team. So, the Portuguese Danny, according to him, not yet ready to play
a full match, therefore came only in the second half. But Oleg Shatov and Alexander
Kokorin, said Lucescu, should “ask themselves about their game”.
A week later, on February 23, Zenit have
to take Anderlecht at home in the return leg.
