Anton Zabolotnyi: Personal success comes second, the most important thing is the team
— Thank you! The feelings are positive. The first match is a hard stage, such games usually turn out to be difficult, you always want to start with a victory. The most important thing is that we overcame the situation, gave one hundred percent, showed decent dedication and excellent football.
— Is this an ideal return for you personally?
— Yes, it is perfect. But the most important thing is that the team is making progress, working very well, preparing for the match. There is a very positive atmosphere in the locker room. Personal success comes second, all thoughts are only about the team.
— You did not score in pre-season games. Were you waiting for the official one, or was it just a perfect pass from Alan?
— If Alan makes a pass, it is always perfect, because he does not make bad ones (smiles). And so, I just saved my ammo. The preparatory stage is unpredictable. You are preparing to get in shape for the first game and the subsequent ones, it is too early to get it at the training camp. Now everything is going as well as possible and positive for PFC CSKA.
— The fans were chanting your name. Did you hear that?
— Yes, it was very nice, thank you. We are grateful to everyone who supported us both live and at the screens. We heard your support, we are moving forward with your help!
— How did the partners congratulate you?
— There were only positive emotions. The most important thing is to train, recover, and that there will not be injuries.
— Has the race for the title of the best scorer already started?
— It is too early to talk about it. The most important thing is not the beginning, not the end, but to go through the whole season smoothly, think positively and develop from game to game. Now the whole team acts as a single mechanism, it unites us and leads to victory.
— What is the current PFC CSKA capable of?
— It is capable of many things. We will go from match to match, each game is like the last frontier, it is a new challenge. The most important task is to win and please the fans.
