Aleksey Berezutskiy: I do not remember that the Cup matches against FNL have ever been easy
— The victory definitely was not easy — said Berezutskiy. — The game was hard, as was the pitch. I do not remember that the Cup matches against FNL have ever been easy. I am happy with the result, but it is very difficult to somehow assess the game on such a lawn.
— When you have chosen the squad for the game, did you take into account the fact that Anton Zabolotny started playing football in Lipetsk? Or did not you know about it? Local fans really wanted to see him here.
— I knew that, but we decided to leave him in Moscow. We proceed from our tasks, from the physical capabilities of the players. Some things may be pleasant for you, but at the same time not quite necessary for us.
— What had to happen for Ejuke to appear on the field?
— He could come out like any other player on the bench, regardless of the score. But it happened as it happened. We did not see the point for Chidi to come out on such a field. Today was a more contact, athletic football. It makes no sense to weave through players on the lawn, consisting of bumps.
— What would you say to your fans?
— I would thank them! We have the second Cup game, and they supported us a lot both in Izhevsk and here. The support was good and warm, we felt at home.
— The fans were chanting that the Cup should be yours. Do you have any tasks in this tournament?
— We always have the same tasks. The fans also chant that CSKA should always be first, that we should be champions. These are great chants that make us move forward.
