Shakhtar midfielder speaks about the preparation for the Donetsk derby against Olimpik

- Fred, how have the team been preparing for the game against Olimpik? What idd you focus on given that it was necessary to train without internationals?
- We have worked well and efficiently during the break related to the international duty. We were fully focused on training. Everyone understands that we are facing a tough match in Sumy. But I believe that we are fully prepared for that meeting. Our objective is claiming the three points and continue to top the table.

- Have you started to analyse the opponents’ performance?
- No, we haven’t done so yet. At the moment, we are focused on our actions and the nuances of our preparation for the upcoming match. I think tomorrow we will begin a detailed analysis of the opponents’ performance, learn their strengths and weaknesses. We must win – that’s Shakhtar’s major objective.

- Yesterday Rinat Akhmetov marked the twentieth anniversary as the club president. What does Shakhtar mean to you?
- First of all, I want to congratulate our president on the fact that he has such a great club – I am very happy to be part of it. During the four years I’ve been here, I feel perfectly well, I feel at home. I hope to spend many years at the club, helping the Pitmen win more trophies. Of course, we will do everything to make people happy with our wins in every competition.
