Luis Neto: "I can't say we are happy with the game, but the result isn't bad"
The Portugal and Zenit defender on the draw in France.
We knew that Bordeaux are a strong team and we played a new system, but for the first 20-25 minutes we didn’t manage to get into any rhythm. There was not enough aggression from our side. After they scored we concentrated more and everything seemed to work out.
Was there more for the defence to do with the 5-3-2 formation?
Yes, this was the first match with such a formation. Of course it was a bit difficult. I can't say we are happy with the game, but the result isn't bad.
Was it nice to finish the match with the captain's armband?
Yes, I felt proud. It was nice to wear the captain's armband, especially after Anyukov, who is a true Zenit legend.
