“Of course, derby is never easy. It's nice that they won at their stadium with the huge support of the fans. The first half, I think, was equal, in the second half we were stronger, although the ending of the match was not easy for us, ”the specialist said at a press conference.
He also admitted that he was worried about how the red and white begin matches. According to him, he had a conversation about this with the team during the break.
“And we had moments, and the opponent. But yes, CSKA owned the ball more. This does not suit us at all, ”Kononov added.
Earlier, the captain of the red and white Georgy Dzhikia called the victory over CSKA a great holiday for Spartak.
