Robert Mak: “The manager told me that he wanted out on the left and I think it worked!”
The Zenit winger spoke to us after the win over Rostov.
We started the match very well from the first minute, we scored a quick goal and we kept control of the game so it was all in our own hands. Rostov had a few chances, but on the whole we controlled the game, we created some good chances. I think it was one of the best games we've played recently. We are happy that we managed to get such a good result.
How about the position you played today?
Yes, it was unusual. The manager told me that he wanted out on the left and I think it worked. I gave everything I had in both attack and defence. This may not be exactly my position, but I like to play on the left. I did my best to help the team and we got an excellent result, we scored two goals and this was a really important game and we continue to win. On Thursday we have a very important game.
Was it a penalty when you went down in the box?
The defender did push me, but the ref did not think it was a foul. That was his decision.
