Luciano Spalletti: “We deserved better”

Zenit`s head coach regretted his team`s poor execution against Anzhi at the post-match press conference.


- The match ended in a tie, 3:3, - Luciano Spalletti started his press conference, deep in thought. – But I think that my team deserved better. We were a little bit naive in a few situations, while in others we played very well. But I also have to compliment Anzhi. The hosts showed good play.

- You sound disappointed with the result…

- Actually, I`m satisfied with my team`s play. We had a good match. And if we had executed even just 30% of our chances, we would have won. But our opponent really wanted to win too. Unfortunately, we let Anzhi organize several counterattacks, and we shouldn`t have let them do that.
