Schmidt: Trubin is calm, focused and motivated, every game will help him progress

The coach is confident in the Ukrainian keeper

Benfica mentor Roger Schmidt spoke about the readiness of the Ukrainian goalkeeper Anatoly Trubin for the upcoming game against Porto in the Portuguese Championship.

“Trubin is very calm, not upset at all. “He didn’t have the best debut at our stadium against Salzburg, but then during the game he remained calm and managed to concentrate.”

“Each game will help him improve, get to know his teammates better and also get used to the stadium. He is very motivated. I don’t see him as a nervous goalkeeper who thought too much about such things. The headquarters prepared him well. I’m sure he’ll have a good game.”

In the last round, Trubin deflected a shot from the 11-meter mark in the lower left corner. Thanks to the contribution of the Ukrainian, the Eagles won over Portimonense (3:1).

The Ukrainian made his debut for Benfica in the Champions League match with Salzburg. Anatoly played unsuccessfully – he scored a penalty in the opening of the match. Anatoly called the incident “a painful but important experience,” and Schmidt supported the Ukrainian on the field of play.

Benfica is in second place in the Portuguese Championship standings. Today Schmidt’s team will play at home against Porto, from which they are one point behind.
