Vasiliy Marunyak: “In general, I am satisfied with the match”
In the First League Astana-Y played a 1:1 draw with Aktobe-Zhas. The Head Coach of the capital youth team Vasiliy Marunyak shared his opinion on the away match:
28 July, 2019
- We had a good match, had the advantage, created opportunities. Then we gave the initiative to the opponent, which at home began to play more attacking. In the second half, we continued to hold the threads of the game, to create chances, but there was lack of realization. We scored anyways, but in the end we did not have enough concentration during the free kick, which resulted in a conceded goal. It was the first match after the break, we didn’t manage to implement on the field something that we were working on, but overall I am satisfied with the game, guys had good dedication, but we hope that our leaders will continue to play on more qualitative level.
- During the transfer period the team announced four new players, how would you evaluate the gain?
- Of the newcomers, only Kashken played. He played at the level, without blunders. But he still needs time for game adaptation, because in the First League the dynamics are much higher, there is more struggle. We kept Mosin for a while, as he gains the shape he will play. The situation is similar for Kushikbayev, Murzabek and Pichkarev. Anyways, we field only the best players, they have to take the field and prove their worth.
