Daler Kuzyaev: "It will be difficult to make up the 8 points, but we'll try"
The Zenit midfielder on returning to Grozny, the match with Akhmat and the situation with the league standings.
A lot didn't work and the game was difficult. It took a long time for us to get used to the pitch. In the first half we didn't play well, but in the second we played better.
How was it playing here as part of the away team?
It's was unusual, I was playing here for the first time as a guest.
How did your friends greet you?
It was excellent, everyone said hello and we talked, in this sense everything was great.
A question regarding the game, was it some bad luck in terms of finishing?
Yes, this was one reason. In the second half, we had some big chances, but we did not score them.
Akhmat always seem to give 200% against Zenit.
Not only Akhmat, many teams give 200% against us and today's match was no exception.
Is it possible to make up the 8 point gap with Lokomotiv?
It will be difficult, but we will try.
