Sent off was a right decision - Ignatyev

Sent off was a right decision - Ignatyev

What Lokomotiv midfielder Vladislav Ignatyev had to say after away game vs Zlin (2:0), which saw Loko progressed into the round of 32 of the Europa League:


- We've got used to the pitch for a long time, to deflated ball. We found a loophole only in the second half. Sent off? You know, it also must be earned. The red card was a right decision from the referee. It's not so easy to score when the opponent is playing with 10 men. Zlin were well-defended, because they played at home.

- Was it important to win your group?

- There was a task just to go to the knockout stages of this tournament, but, of course, everyone wanted the first place in the group. We made every effort.

- You missed the last game because of an injury. How are you feeling now?

- When you don't miss matches, you feel better. In the first half it was hard. We were more defensive, we less controlled the ball. In the second it became easier.

- Did you expect to see so many fans of Lokomotiv?

- It seemed that we've got more fans than Czech. It was the impression that we were playing at home. They helped us a lot.
