Denys Popov: “I’m glad to be on the field again”

FC Dynamo Kyiv defender Denys Popov has told our site about the White-Blues first training session after quarantine easement.

- The session was okay. I was happy to see everyone as I missed my teammates. We’re glad to be on the field again and restart normal training process.

- What was this session about?

- It was a good one. We did a warm-up, played in squares and had a small competition. Then we worked individually.

- How difficult is it to get back to work?

- It’s not too difficult as we did a kind of homework during the quarantine.

- What did Olexiy Mykhailychenko tell the team?

- He told us that that quarantine isn’t actually over and we must follow safety restrictions.

- What restrictions do you have at the training complex?

- Employees wear masks and gloves. There’re sanitizers everywhere.

- Do you think the UPL will restart on May 30? Will you be ready for that?

- We don’t know that for sure, but we keep this date in mind. We all want to play and be fit. Judging by this training session, guys are in pretty good shape.

- Do you know that in FC Mynai you are to face in the Ukrainian Cup semifinal there’s a player with coronavirus?

- I’ve read about that. Of course it’s a serious issue. They need isolation. I’d like to wish Mynai player good health.
