Rostov coach Valery Karpin commented on the team's results for the 2018/19 season.
– Who expressed the task of hitting the European Cup? Area of leadership? Ok, congratulations to them. There are always flaws, the game didn't work in November and December, these are my faults. Are you willing to resign voluntarily? Who sent you this question that you read from a piece of paper? Can you repeat without it? I consider that team play progresses. Last year we took the 11th place. This year is still unknown, but we are no longer ready for the start, even though we have changed half of the team in winter.
The problem with the loss of points exists, it must be solved. In connection with the change of many players, in addition to the attack, you have to adjust the game in defense. Before the attacker's hands can't reach, there are now many problems in defense. I look at my work and the team's potential with optimism, it depends on many factors. I have reasons for this, the DonNews agency reports the words of the specialist.
We recall, "Rostov" lost to "Lokomotiv" in the second meeting of the Cup of the Russian Cup and finished the tournament performance.
In the championship of Russia the club occupies the 8th place, earning 38 points for 2 rounds before the end of the tournament.
