The captain of Dynamo Kiev, Andriy Yarmolenko has commented upon the victory Dynamo over the miner in Donetsk.

“The defeat in the super Cup match was for us a decent blow to the self esteem. No one likes to lose. It was clear that today we wanted more to win than the opponent. I think that they deserved to win.

The field was really a team, everyone worked in defence and in attack. I believe that in these games, when defending, tactics, fade into the background, I play more by giving.

In the first half, Mbokani almost no points, even though he constantly clung to the balls. Class striker this is – he was waiting for his moment and used it, and now we’re taking three points home. I congratulate our city and our fans.

Derlis Gonzalez was close to score a goal. He probably did not expect that to break, because in the previous game, he reaches into the box, but barely finished before the gate. I told him after the game were advised to eat meat to have enough force. (smiling) he took a Supplement at lunch today.

Maksym Koval? I told him after the game said, “when you’re good, you’re good.” What for him may be a claim, when the man rescued defended normally. Bravo, well done.

The last minute was given to the team hard. Need their to take our chances, then it would be easier. And so, frankly, in the last moments of the forces already practically does not remain.

Always after these victories over arch-rivals a second wind, inspiration. To the young boys will get ready in a good mood. Understand that a club like Dynamo Kyiv must play in the Champions League,” said Yarmolenko.
