Pascual, the coach of Zenit, answered a question about his future in the team

After the victory over Lokomotiv-Kuban Krasnodar in the second match of the third place series of the VTB United League, the head coach of Zenit St. Petersburg Javier Pascual said that now it is important for him to finish the current season well.

On Monday, the St. Petersburg club defeated Lokomotiv-Kuban at home with a score of 99:96 and took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-three series. The third match will take place on May 30 in Krasnodar.

— The two teams were tied for a long time and until the very end, it was unclear who would end up winning. For our part, we were always in the match, even if we were behind for part of the match. In principle, it is not easy to play against Lokomotiv-Kuban, but we found the strength in ourselves and were able to achieve an important victory in a difficult ending. I also wish Lokomotiv player Ndour a speedy recovery so that he can play again.

— What can you expect from the third match of the series in Krasnodar?

— It’s hard to say how everything will turn out there. We had injury problems, every day we go to games with the same basketball players. Microtraumas also occur. For example today at Denis Zakharov. However, we try to come together as a team. We will try to recover as best as possible and go to Krasnodar to get the victory.

— Could this be your last post-match press conference in St. Petersburg?

“The most important thing now is to finish the season well. And it’s not the best time to talk about what’s going to happen in the offseason. Now I’m here, I’m with the team,” said Pascual, quoted by the correspondent.
