Match will surely be interesting

Shakhtar forward Olarenwaju Kayode reflects on the training camp and the upcoming meeting with the Vienna-based Austria

- Larry, how are you doing and feeling? Are you on the mend now?
- I do some exercises, training individually. In a couple of days I should be back to the pitch and start jogging.
- We are looking forward to your return. Today Shakhtar are meeting with Austria, which is familiar to you.
- Right, I’ve spent two seasons there. They are a great team, showcasing good football. Their squad has only a few guys I used to play with, but I'm confident the friendly will surely be interesting. Austria will try to do their best against such an eminent club like ours. In my opinion, Shakhtar are stronger and must win.
- What players do you know?
- For example, Abdul Kadiri Mohammed, Alexander Grunwald, the goalkeeper Patrick Pentz ... I have many friends there, we may well meet and have a little chat.
- What’s the opponents’ style of play?
- Austria always attacks and counterattacks, but we’ve got some fast players for this, in particular the Brazilians. In general, when I played there, we had a fantastic team. I’m not sure about now, because last season the guys didn’t quite succeed, with the coach being sacked and some players leaving the club. It won’t be easy for them to rise again... I’ll certainly say hi to my friends, but I want Shakhtar to win it. I will watch the match as a spectator, support Shakhtar and be proud of my team.
