Head coach of “Tambov” Alexander Grigoryan commented on the game his team in the match of the ninth round of the championship of Russia against CSKA Moscow.
The meeting, held on Sunday in Saransk ended with the score 2:0 in favour of CSKA. Goals were scored by kristijan Bistrovic (84th minute) and Harder Magnusson (90+4). The nominal owners had completed a meeting in the minority after the removal of Valery Ciuperci (72). In the 65th minute, CSKA forward Fyodor Chalov fails to convert his penalty.
“The game was before deletion. And then in the minority – nothing to comment. Although we are in the minority, looked decent. (Before deletion) is absolutely equal game, no one benefits was not. Sharpness arose at our gate, and at the gate CSKA. Advantage nobody owned up to this point,” said Grigoryan at a press conference, a video which was published on the official site “Tambov”.
Grigoryan also disagreed with the referee on the episode with the penalty.
“We have to understand that CSKA plays and plays “Tambov” – the skilled arbitrator, of course, waiting for a mistake in “Tambov”, it is natural. But in fact he was wrong, there was no episode that would have carried a risk of our goal the ball hit (in hand) by accident. As for removal – Ciuperca was one of the best on the field until this episode. Not whether the rights of the referee by removing Superku? Absolutely right. We’re “Tambov”, we have very scarce resources, we are not interested arbitrator. All claims to us and to Ciuperca. An insult to the arbitrator was, I asked. Hence, to remove it had the full”, – Grigoryan noted.
