Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin commented on Dynamo’s 2-1 victory over CSKA in the Tinkoff RPL Round 3 match. 

The hockey player attended the game at the VTB Arena. 

– Well done for winning. We lost 0: 1 and showed character. Dynamo is famous for the fact that it puts in its pupils . It can be seen that the result is always done at the expense of their own guys. Are they stronger than the generation of Smolov and Kokorin? I am a simple fan who is a fan of Barcelona and Dynamo. The most important thing for us is the result. It’s nice to see that our students play and show results. 

Whom do you recommend to Karpin from Dynamo? I am not a football specialist. It is up to Karpin to decide. He is an experienced person. I hope that the national team will get better and will win. Fans always bet on winning. Today there was a serious contender. We won a principled match. I am happy for the team, for the fans and for the coaches.

How did you feel about Messi’s departure from Barcelona? No way. What should I write to him? It’s a shame that such a legend leaves the club, but this is life. I hope that I will go to the Olympics in Beijing, but do not throw words. Let’s see what happens , – said Ovechkin. 

After defeating CSKA, Sandro Schwartz’s team scored 9 points and climbed to 3rd place in the Tinkoff RPL standings. In the next round, Dynamo will play on the road against Akhmat on 14 August.
