Viktor Hancharenka: If you do not score in three home games in a row, it is not just a failure, it is a disaster
— PFC CSKA has not made it out of the group in the Europa League for two years in a row. Is it a failure or not?
— It is wrong to compare this and last year performance. Then we had a bigger bench. This year there have not been any periods of rest between seasons, and this affects all our teams in November and December. We see a good team in trainings, but in matches we lower the playing level and movement.
— Do the players in the team understand you and your ideas now?
— We understand well what we are doing, but we are missing the next step. I cannot say that the players do not understand me, first we go well, and then there are failures.
— Did not you want to switch to a three centre-backs scheme?
— As for the last matches, we only had two defenders, and we did not think about it. If we had ready Vasin, Fuchs and Nababkin, then maybe we would have considered this option. We had good matches with both two and three central defenders.
— What is the reason for such a prolonged crisis of Chalov? And can we call Gaich's transfer a failure?
— Three months of a striker's stay is not a disaster. We decided for ourselves that Gaich needs a month of full training. Therefore, I would not be so categorical. As for Chalov, he has a problem with opening up to the zones.
— At the pre-match press conference, you said that you would try to surprise your opponent in attack. Did you manage to do something?
— Today there were sprouts of our best actions in attack, but they disappeared when the players started to get tired. And when you are tired, you make fewer right decisions.
