Malcom: "I hope we will continue winning in the Champions League"
The UEFA Man of the Match spoke to us after the 4-0 win over Malmo.
We really prepared for this game and we knew that they would play on the counterattack and that this was their main threat. I think the match was not that easy, but still we controlled the game from the first minute. We worked hard and got the win at home in front of our own fans.
This award is not only for me, but for the whole team. Everyone did great today and did their job. I hope we will continue winning in the Champions League.
Zenit started very brightly and pinned Malmö back, but seemed to slow down after scoring the first. What is the reason for this?
We are playing in the Champions League where are the teams are top quality and are able to compete against every team. We treat every opponent with respect and yes, maybe we did reduce the pressure a little, because they know how to play well on the counter. It's good that in the second half we again managed to take control of the game again.
If you had to choose your Man of the Match who would you give it to?
Barrios! He played perfectly in an unusual position today, but he coped with it amazingly. So if I had to choose, I would give it to Barrios, plus he's a great guy.
