The failure in the playoffs of the last season of the VTB United League should motivate CSKA for success in the future, said “” army captain Nikita Kurbanov .
Last season, the Moscow club won bronze in the United League, beating Zenit in the series for third place. In the semi-finals, the Rouge-Bleu lost to Lokomotiv-Kuban 3-4 in the series.
– How do you personally assess the results of the past season?
— Of course, we didn’t think about third place. I had plans for the final in my head. But it turned out that it happened. Probably, now the emotions have calmed down and you are thinking less. Well, that means we have to work on something more in order to qualify for the championship.
– Did the military team underestimate Lokomotiv-Kuban in the semi-finals?
“To be honest, I don’t want to focus on anything now, go back in time and look for something we weren’t ready for. It’s hard. It’s just that a certain period has already passed and you have already given up certain moments.
And, of course, you have to let go. Yes, we lost, but take it easy and use it as a tool next year. That should be your main motivation,” Kurbanov told .
