- Viktor, what’s your emotional experience after the season start?
- It was important to start with a victory, that’s crucial. The emotional experience is great: we really missed the game, plus the fans finally came to the stadium. We won, everything’s fine.
- In the match against Inhulets, Shakhtar broke their own record for the number of passes completed. How satisfied are you with the quality of the play and your fitness?

- Absolutely because we won. Again, it was important for us to get off to a good start. But there were also some mistakes that we will correct.
