Olexandr KHATSKEVYCH: “We must demonstrate character and will power”

FC Dynamo Kyiv head coach on the second leg against Club Brugge KV.

- Rodrigues scored against FC Shakhtar Donetsk. Will he be in the starting lineup?

- We have serious competition inside the team. Maybe we’ll play using two forwards. You’ll see. Of course we need to score, but we mustn’t forget about defense. Gerson can perform in several positions.

- Have players reconditioned from psychological point of view? How tough is your schedule?

- We’ve already switched to the game against Brugge. Tomorrow we have a cup match. Psychologically we’re ready. This is our sixth game within a short period of time. We must demonstrate character and will power to win.

- Could you please tell about situation concerning Shaparenko?

- He’s the first team player. There’re no transfer negotiations.

- Is everyone fine?

- Popov has picked up small injury. Duelund is still recovering. Other players are getting ready for the game.

- Did Karavayev miss the match against Shakhtar because his mistake resulted in penalty for Brugge in Belgium?

- This is football, everyone can make a mistake. We have a strategy for every game. Olexandr is getting ready for the match against Brugge.
