Dynamo coach Jokanovic said the players were not eager enough in the match against Sochi.

“Of course we were disappointed with the game and the result. We lacked speed. I can’t say that Sochi put us in a difficult situation, they were fast. But it is worth noting that they were very organized in defense. They gave them two gifts and then they scored. It was difficult to turn the game. It cannot be said that Sochi somehow showed up. The problem is with us first. The opponent did not make extra effort. We feel that we do not believe enough in our success,” said Jokanovic.
Jokanovic did not link Dynamo’s problems in the spring season with pre-season training. “We have a lot of injured players right now. If we look at the previous games, we didn’t make any mistakes against Zenit and Ural. There were mistakes today. It’s the same second goal we missed in Rostov today.” “I wouldn’t associate it with the pre-season – it’s already the beginning of April. The peak of the season, the team needs to be as ready as possible. There was not enough passion, desire today. We played slowly.” expert noted.
