Aleksey Berezutskiy: I am glad that PFC CSKA managed to show character in the derby
— Difficult weather conditions, and the match itself was quite difficult, so to say, the question was who would make the first mistake, — said Berezutskiy. — I am very glad that it was not us, but Spartak. We won the match because of the character.
— Why did Zaynutdinov play in the center, and not Oblyakov?
— Bakha is an utility player, he can play almost any position. We could have switched him with Oblyakov, he is already used to playing on the left. Therefore, in my opinion, everything is logical.
— Rui Vitoria (red-whites' head coach) said that Spartak was better today, it was unlucky. Do you agree with this?
— I would not like to answer him. We played at the same level today. Perhaps Spartak did more kicks, but all from a long distance, the game went on until the first mistake. I am glad that PFC CSKA managed to show character in the derby
— How does Zabolotny adapt to the club where he grew up? Is he already part of the core?
— There is a feeling that Anton did not ever leave. We have football players with whom he played together in youth school.
— How hard was it to prepare for the match because of the changes in the Spartak squad?
— It was not easy to prepare, but not for this reason. We did not follow what was happening at Spartak. We were preparing for the scheme according to which they will play, but without focusing on the players. We also had questions about our line-up – whether Mario and Zabolotny will be able to play. Vasin was injured during pregame training. Therefore, first of all, we followed ourselves.
— What did you like about PFC CSKA game in the starting part?
— Let's put it this way: I like the fact that we show good football at times. Unfortunately, this is only for small intervals, I am not talking about the whole match, it is hard. What does not make me happy is that we can spend 30 minutes perfectly and fail other 15 minutes.
— Kuchaev came out in the end, but he could have left this summer. Why did not you let him go, what are not you satisfied with in his game?
— This is the first time I have heard that he could have left.
