Nikolay Panayotov: I know we have the qualities to win
The head coach of CSKA Nikolay Panayotov spoke to the media before visiting in the IX round of the efbet League.
"I expect an interesting match, we trained well during the week. The national team is back, we have all the players. We hope to perform well and come out victorious," began the specialist.
"Favourites in the championship can hardly be said. The most important thing is to show a good face and a good game and we are the people who rejoice at the end."
"I talked to the players. We play each other as a match regardless of which stadium we are in."
"Regardless of the ranking, we have to come out motivated. I think our team has good players, this team deserves to compete and win."
"I have a lot of options in my head. I am glad that we have good and equal players. Every single player is important in this team. As the match progresses, we evaluate what is best for the team," continued Panayotov.
"You can expect every single player in the squad. Regardless of who plays in the previous game. When the quality is high, we can count on every single player."
"Zinga is lagging behind in his preparations. An individual program has just been made, he will accumulate minutes in the second team and join us. Serdyuk gradually started to train. He certainly needs more time, you know his injury was severe," noted the head coach.
"The biggest advantage rather for us as a staff and as a team has to remain. I don't think we're giving up on this team. I know we have the quality to win. I know we can go and play."
"At every away game it is possible to have provocations. A coach, when he is with a visiting team, must focus on the match," he concluded.
