Aleksey Berezutskiy: The game was quite good, both teams wanted to win
— The game was quite good, — said Berezutskiy. — It ended 0-0, but both teams wanted to win, had chances, there were quite a lot of shots, but no one managed to score.
— It seemed that the team had problems in a defensive midfield. Do you associate this with the players' shortcomings or because Krykhovyak was better than Mukhin in a personal duel?
— I would not say that there was a personal duel, it was just that Krasnodar midfielders or wingers went more into the center, created an advantage there, and we mostly lost a lot of balls in the first half. But I repeat, it was not a personal duel.
— PFC CSKA does not miss in four matches in a row. How do you assess the game in defense, and does the Diveev-Bijol combination justify itself?
— I have already said more than once — all modern teams often use two schemes in a season, and we are not an exception. We are preparing the team to be able to switch to both three central defenders and two without any discomfort. If we talk about today's game, then Igor and Jaka looked pretty good.
— What were you thinking about when the referees were watching VAR at the end?
— This is the reality (VAR), which I faced even earlier than in the Russian Championship. They watch not only penalties, but also the correctness of all goals. Maybe some emotions are lost, but that is life. I was waiting for the referee's decision, VAR, nothing more. But of course, it is good that there was no penalty in the end.
— How can you assess Chalov's game? Does he have any problems, or is it just an unsuccessful period of the season?
— If we are talking about the last two matches, then he played well enough with Nizhny Novgorod, although he did not score. Today, in my opinion, he performed worse, but in a different position. But, very importantly, I have not watched the technical recording yet. He had fewer chances, but I am more concerned about the quality of the game of a particular player and the team as a whole.
