Roberto Mancini: "We deserved to win the match"
The blue-white-sky blue boss on the draw with Akhmat, the substitution of Shatov and the changes the team needs.
Why did you sub Shatov after bringing him on earlier?
After he went on to the pitch, he started to run badly. I did not like the way he moved, so I replaced him with Poloz. He seemed to me to be more suitable for the game that was opening up on the field.
What did you say to the Akhmat players?
One of the players with whom I had a discussion with today, is very good and talented, but at such a young age he's already diving. There were at least three occasions when he dived and looked to get someone booked. But he's a very good football player.
What are your future plans for the team?
We definitely need to make adjustments to our game. There are many things that I do not like and the main thing is not finishing the chances we create. We need a person who can score a large number of goals and we do not have that now.
