Shakhtar’s mentor commented on the victory over Rennes in the Europa League.

Shakhtar head coach Igor Jovicevich commented on the victory over Rennes in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League:

According to the specialist, his wards showed character, thanks to which they won.

“We know it will be a very difficult match against Rennes. You see the push from the crowd, the atmosphere in the stadium is great. My dream, my only dream, is that our fans push us in our stadium. And then it’s easier to play. But we know that it will be difficult, that we have to endure, and the character that we show, that we show – this is not one time, and this is no longer an exception. , but the lifestyle of this team, and I removed my cap in front of them – great respect for them.

It makes me happy when I see how they fight! And this is not demagoguery, not empty words that we play for Ukraine. I think the first half is especially difficult. We didn’t want to adapt, but the opposing team forced us. Especially Doku – there are very few players in the market as a whole. He himself played against us, one might say. He takes over, sharpens, creates a quantitative advantage – it’s very difficult to play against him.”

“In the second half, I think we played at a good level, with such stability. These are our first matches in the Europa League, and I can find no words but to thank the team for the fact that we died today in sports, we “broke” ourselves with several legs… I don’t know, this is a reward from the Lord for our work that we show. And I want you to be proud of us, as we are proud of you. This is mutual love. And we move on. We should rest and wait for the draw,” said Jovicic.
