President of Uralmash: “The debut in the United League was successful.  Next season, I would like to enter the top 6″

President “Uralmash” Viktor Ganienko, in a conversation with , called the team’s performance in the first season in the VTB United League successful and also described the task of the new championship.

Last season, Uralmash reached the quarterfinals of the league playoffs, where they lost in the series against Zenit St. Petersburg – 1-4.

— The results of the team’s first season in the VTB United League are more than successful. Because we prepared for it even when we were playing in the Super League. We have now played with great success. In principle, we should have entered the top six, but unfortunately, an unsuccessful match with Runa in Moscow and a defeat in Astana deprived us of this opportunity. And we are already together for the second part of the season. I invited a good coach – Rostislav Vergun. We lost under him in the second part of the MBA season, but we played without any hiccups. In addition, we successfully played in the Russian Cup.

— What goals do you set for next season?

— I would like to enter immediately, directly into the top 6. God grant that there are no injuries. Our team is good and strong. With this group, if everything goes well, we should enter the top 6.

Will the championship have 12 teams instead of 14? This presents a certain difficulty: there will be a very serious concentration. If we talk about the future, we would like to see the number of teams in the United League increase to 16 in the future. We have a large population in our country,” Ganienko told .
