Anji head coach gave his commentary after the match:
- The match consists of different splits. Our players were rather active, in some moments we managed to create good scoring opportunities, however, failed to take them.I`d like the players to be more relaxed and not to be pressed by the problems with the points. When preparing for the game we periodically reminded the players of that, but it didn`t help. It was more evident in the first half.
- The match was attended by the club`s owner Suleyman Kerimov…
- He entered our changing room to cheer us up. He said that sometimes our play should be praised, other times - criticized.
- Why hasn`t Traore played today?
- Traore won`t take the field this year. When leaving for the national team Lacina received definite recommendations, the same recommendations were given to the fitness coach of their national team.We submitted a letter to the federation, it ran that Traore is injured and his training activity should be restricted. He took part in the national team`s practice and injured that very muscle again. Traore is apologetic about that, he wants to be ready for the Europa League match, but this is just talks, nothing more.
- Abdul Razak hasn`t taken the field today either.
- He`s also injured and didn`t train. We hoped that player would be in form for the match, but he hasn`t recovered.
- Will Anji manage to maintain a spot in the Premier League?
- It`ll be too difficult to accomplish the task, but it`s possible. You`re not beaten, as long as you`re fighting.
