- As an excuse for my team, I’d like to say that we had a tough week. Due to some objective reasons, we didn’t have a proper preparation to the match. Many players were missing, so I had to choose among the alive ones, nevertheless, it’s me who has to take all blames for the defeat. The hosting team played aggressively and wanted to win. Surely, we did also, but we lacked passion in the first half. The boys wanted to turn the game around, there were chances. However, Grodno had some moments in counter attacks. As a result, the Blue-Whites lost and we have to accept the defeat.
