Volodymyr Sharan: We’ll get a bonus for this match

Mentor of Oleksandriya shared his thoughts about the game against Shakhtar.

- The impression is positive, because before sending off Shendryk, we were playing successfully. Except for Shakhtar having had more scoring chances. Still, Oleksandriya didn’t sit deep and tried to produce the performance we want to see. I would like to compare it with the team’s eleven-men performance - then I would be able to make certain conclusions. Nevertheless, the lads did well, since they showed grit, scoring the second goal with just ten men, even earlier having had some minor chances, which they might convert. Shakhtar, of course, also created some, but the opponents had one player more. Therefore, we can regard only as our asset the play, which surely pleased our fans. We want not such a large number, but at least just a bit more people to gather in the stands at every Premier League match.

- Traditionally, the president of the club attends the dressing room of the team. What did he say this time?
- He thanked the team for the performance and dedication. I have already said it: the president always appreciates our work and he said that we would get a bonus for this match. I wish there were more such presidents who are well-versed in football and treat the team so positively! So the guys give their all on the field, which they’ve just done today.
