Magomed Ozdoev: "It's strange that Rostov have such a pitch, it's just not for football"
The Zenit midfielder spoke about the game in Rostov-on Don.
They had chances and so did we, but we had the advantage for the whole of the match. Rostov only kicked it long on a heavy pitch, it was very difficult.It's strange that Rostov have such a pitch, it's just not for football. It's already March and no cold weather. It's a shame that we did not win and we didn't score. We tried but now we need to correct this in our next matches.
Will Mammana's injury be a problem for the team?
I'll be sorry to lose him. We do not yet know what the diagnosis is, but every player is part of the team and we and the fans will support him. Losing a player always has an affect, but we have good quality players who can replace in every position.
In the absence of Paredes you took some corners and free kicks. You have just joined the club, but how important is that the manager trusts you?
The coach decides who takes what and I'm okay with that. This does not mean that I was given any special trust, it's just that the coach decided that I should take them from that flank, and I did just that.
