The head coach of Poltava Vorskla commented on the defeat to AIK and the relegation from the Conference League.

The Vorskla players gave it their all, but the long downtime and lack of match practice took a toll. This is how Poltava head coach Victor Skrypnyk commented on the loss to Swedish AIK and the relegation from the Conference League.

“Seven months cannot be hidden in any way. Maybe a week ago there were more emotions, because it was the first game in 7 months, a beautiful stadium, an audience. But when it comes to serious things, there are miscalculations that becomes decisive. .

Congratulations to the opponent for the win. All the players gave their all in this game, many had convulsions. All forces were left in the field. The class of our opponents was affected. There was a forced substitution in the first half. Players who played first team roles left. It’s hard to replace them now.

I can’t say a bad word about those guys who went out on the field and gave it their all. We did everything we could. There were moments, not scored. We conceded two goals, it’s a shame: there was a rebound, it was just not enough.

We failed, but we left Stockholm with our heads held high. It remains to ask the AIK team to go as far as possible in this tournament,” said Skripnik at the post-match press conference.

Recall that Poltava Vorskla lost in the qualification of the League of Conferences to the Swedish AIK. After winning the first match 3:2, the Ukrainian club lost the second match 0:2. Both confrontations took place in Sweden due to the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine.
