Olexiy Mykhailychenko: “Serious work starts from day one”

FC Dynamo Kyiv head coach Olexiy Mykhailychenko has shared his expectations of preparations for the second part of the season.

- How do you feel before the training camp?

- Fine. We want to prove that failures in the first part of the season were accidental. Of course we’re looking forward to new victories.

- Do you already know how fit players are after vacation?

- We’ll see that early in the training camp. I’m sure our guys are true professionals and despite the vacation they all worked individually.

- Did players get individual training programs for vacation period?

- They didn’t. If player wants that, he’ll definitely work out. We warned them that serious work would start from day one. I think they heard me. The first session has proved they’re ready.

- There’re some new faces in the lineup, including youngsters. Do you count on them?

- They need to demonstrate what they’re capable of. Then we’ll have serious competition in the team which is very important. We have several performers for each position. Unfortunately there’re some issues. For example, Popov has health problems. On the other hand, Rusyn has come back after loan move. We hope he can become our leading striker.
