Athletistic / Hockey. Head coach of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Igor Nikitin cited the reasons for the defeat in the Gagarin Cup final. The railway workers lost the series against Metallurg with a score of 0:4.

“I can’t say that everything has already been analyzed, the process is ongoing. Deep analysis is very important, you need to develop further and understand how you win and lose. Now you look at these things when you already know the result. , so you start from the fact that you already realize how it all ended. It’s not that simple. There is something wrong, I understand that I didn’t succeed. to keep the team in shape during these 10 days We were not in the best emotional and motivational state that I managed, this irritates me especially, ”said Nikitin.

Lokomotiv finished their semi-final series in four matches, while Metallurg had to play all seven matches.
