The Zenit St. Petersburg goalkeeper Yuri Lodygin work with the Romanian specialist Mircea Lucescu.

The goalkeeper of Zenit Yuri Lodygin told about how he worked with Romanian coach Mircea Lucescu.

“Actually, strange man. I think age strongly it affected. Tactically, technically it was visible: an experienced coach can learn something. It is puzzling his reaction to some things, words. It got to the point that the Russian spoke in Portuguese and Portuguese – Russian. It’s like that I’m about to start speaking Greek.

When I gave the neighbor, and he returned a nasty pass or even lost the ball, Lucescu shouted: “Why are you giving him?! Do the long ball”. And when we were put under pressure and I made long, he said, “do Not long”. Why I made a mistake in the match against Rostov? When the coach arrived, we started to develop this tactic. Since the beginning of the charges he did was yell: “it is Impossible to do it long. Impossible! Do what you want – not long”. But we are human beings and we need time to adjust.

Poloz told me later: “We know how you play. Expect you will pass to give.” I won’t deny I was wrong. But I was just trying to do what coach wanted, instead of evaluating the time-the goalie, as he understood and felt it, and play your way,” – privodit words Lodygina championship.

Note that after dismissal from Zenit, the Romanian specialist was coach of the national team of Turkey.
