Branislav Ivanovic: "Now I'm giving everything to Zenit and preparing for the next game"
When we play at home, it is very important to score first. After that, the game is already going your way. I think in the first half we controlled the match completely. Then in the second half for fifteen minutes or so we let the game go a little. But we managed to score again. In the end, we had more chances to score but we still have to work on that. We got a big three points today. 

Did Rostov surprise you by anything today? 

We've seen two different Rostovs, one in the Cup and one today. Just from the first minute it was obvious that we wanted to win it more. 

Today we saw three defenders, plus Mak, a right-footer, playing on the left. Was this a tactic specifically for Rostov?

We can quickly change from three defenders to four or five. It all depends on the opponent. Today everything went perfectly for us. 

The fans really like you and you one of the team's leaders, but your contract will expire soon. Is there any news on this? 

Thank you very much for this and thanks to the fans! I am pleased with everything at Zenit. But in football, you never know what will happen tomorrow. Now I'm giving everything to Zenit and preparing for the next game.
