Quotes KK Zagreb vs. Krasnye Krylia

23.03.2010

KK Zagreb head coach Denis Bajramovic:
"We deserve to lose this game, this was not the game we wanted to play, there was no fluency in the game, the ball did not go through. Since a lot of players have just recovered we did not have a choice but to play with the players who have not been in the team for quite a while. We have tried different tacticts but unfortunately, it just did not work. We started the game too reluctantly, while for some players it was obvious that they played under a lot of strain. We were not concentrated enough which made it more difficult. In two days we play in Samara , so nothing has been lost yet. This will be a game with equal chances. If we manage to win in Russia, I 'm sure that in the third game, in a week in Zagreb we will play good enough to confirm our place in th Final four."

KK Zagreb player Krunoslav Simon:
"What a pity! We have missed a big chance so now we must try to make it up in Russia. Unfortunately, we did not do our best when we had to. For the last couple of games, we have had a lot problems with injured players or the players who were ill and this is the pay time. In the new game in two days, we just have to play much better and do our best to win and put Zagreb back in the winning series. We must try to get to the Final four through the third game."

Krasnye Krylia head coach Mikhail Mikhailov:
"I would like to congratulate my players on a big victory. They have mainly played what we have agreed upon. We have prepared well for this game knowing that Zagreb can play very dangerously. We were also aware of their problems with injured and ill players. We decided to fight till the very end, and we did it, in the last minutes we played more concentated and with more freshness and have deserved to win."

Krasnye Krylia guard Ernest Bremer:
"We have played a very good game, playing in a calm and concentrated way at the very finals of the game when Zagreb tried to return and change the result. We did a very good job and now we have to confirm this victory in two days, playing at home in Samara and secure the Final four."
