Shakhtar midfielder shared his take on the season start

- Maksym, what was the first training with Paulo Fonseca like?
- We’ve worked well, the impression is good. We are getting used to the training mode of two sessions daily, so we’ll have another session this evening. Paulo Fonseca tries to convey to us his vision of the game, with us trying to fulfil his every task.

- The very first training and just two hours of workload straight away. Difficult?
- Of course, that’s not easy, but it is the beginning of the season. We must be patient, especially for the first few days. Now we're just getting used to each other. Our objective is listening to the head coach and his assistants. The requirements are slightly different, so we must grasp and memorise everything very quickly.

- A few days later, Ukraine national team are to play a Euro 2016 game against Northern Ireland. What expectations do you have ahead of the meeting?
- I am sure it will be a very tough encounter, because there are no easy opponents in the European Championship. But our guys should win. They understand themselves that they won’t be happy with anything except the win. I think the coaching staff will decide what tactics to choose and how to build the game to achieve a positive result.
