Ivica Olic: I think we deserved to win, but it was not easy
— It was an important game for both teams, everyone wanted to make it to the semifinals, — Olic said. — It was important to go through to the next stage of the Cup after the victory over Tambov. It wasn't easy, but I knew it. Of course, if we had used our chances earlier, it would have been better, but this is a game. I think we deserved to win.
— Why does Rondon have problems with scoring and how to help him with this?
— Today Chalov came out from the first minutes, he had two moments, one of them was one hundred percent scoring. For me, the most important thing is that they play for the team. Forwards don't always score, defenders Karpov and Mario scored today. The main thing is that we have moments, we need to continue working. There will be a new game soon, and then there will be an almost weekly cycle, we will train.
— Can you assess Alan Dzagoev's performance?
— Dzaga was injured for a long time, he spent several full training sessions with us. He played 25 minutes today and I'm very pleased with him. Everyone knows that he has experience and quality. The main thing is that he remains well and can continue to help the team.
— What can you say about Arsenal's game?
— The team beat PFC CSKA, Zenit. It feels like Arsenal is preparing and waiting only for the top clubs. They had a lot of games that they should have won but ended up losing. Today, the players gave their all, managed to play both in defense and in attack. But I was sure that we would use our chances anyway. Now we need to forget this match and concentrate on Rotor.
