Kakhaber Tskhadadze: We do not look at the results during pre-season
FC Kairat manager Kakhaber Tskhadadze shared his thoughts after a friendly game against Anzhi Makhachkala (0-1).
Kakhaber Tskhadadze, FC Kairat:
- We have done everything what has been planned for today's game. The match was intense, with a lot of challenges, but at the moment this is what we need as we continue to prepare for a long season. Overall, we had most of possession, controlled the ball well. The only issue was we were not creative enough, we needed to sharp our game, we will work on it. On the other hand, when conceded a goal, we lost our concentration, and teams of such quality will punish you for that. Mistakes that have been made today will be analysed.
Anzhi could have been left with nine men, but this is a friendly and such things are agreed on prior to the game. Of course, if it was nine of them, we would have pushed more forward, but this is a friendly game and preparing ourselves for the season. We will face eleven men in the Premier League, not nine. Yes, it is disappointing to lose, but we have to do our job.
- In last two friendly games Kairat managed to score only once. Is this a concern?
- We had selection problems going into both of these games. We were missing three key players against Dinamo Moscow, and today Gohou did not play. You know, we do not look at the results during the pre-season. We have a training plan which we follow and we make changes according to the plan, for example we took off Islamkhan, Isael and Bakaev after the first half.
