FC Dynamo Brest’s midfielder Alexey Legchilin explains the reasons for the poor game against Krumkachy and comments on BATE’s notorious statement after the Cup game.
- The goal didn’t bring joy to me. I’m sorry it was not the winning one. We keep falling into the same trap: we make one mistake and pay for it. We are controlling the game, possessing the ball, don’t let the opponent create many chances in front of our goal, but we fail to create our own moments. As a result, we have a fair draw, we didn’t deserve a win. There was a moment for Mozolevsky in the very end, but he was unlucky. We need to pull our socks up and start winning. Our rivals are winning their games, and we not.
The emotions after the win over BATE ended quickly, we were focusing on this match… I can only bring apology to our supporters for not meeting the expectations. We need to make right conclusions, we cannot play like this.
What do you think about BATE’s statement after the Cup game, which contains your name?
- I was highly surprised, to be honest. That was a clear playing episode. I had no intention to hurt Tuominen, he just was first on ball. I had to brake suddenly, but he put in his leg. I hit it, but there was no cruel intention from my side. They demand on my suspension, as if I slid in hard sneakily. I never play like this, and after that game I apologized to Tuominen.
