“The team broke down in the last matches. Will be working”


Metalist’s coach Oleg Ratiy assessed the defeat from Dynamo with a score of 0:3, and also summed up the first half of the Ukrainian championship.

Kharkiv finished the first half of the championship in 10th place.

– The game was very tense. In the first half, we played more or less well in defense, but we played unsuccessfully at set pieces, as a result of which we conceded the first two goals. Well, then Dynamo’s class took its toll: with the score at 2:0, the opponent created several scoring chances even before the break. In the second half, the Kievans controlled the game, but after the break we snapped a little and had a few chances to score.

– Are the team’s plans for the off-season and next season already known? How will you prepare?

“You want to know too soon. Probably no team knows. Unless, perhaps, Dynamo and Shakhtar are making plans… While we are returning to Uzhgorod, some guys will go home, but we will meet with the management and decide how to work further.

– In your opinion, as a coach, which position needs to be strengthened more in winter? And why didn’t Pidlepenets play today?

– Probably, every coach wants reinforcements in every lane and in every position – we are no exception. You have seen that we do not have enough players for some matches, and we have to put the players in the wrong positions. Pidlepenets got injured during the game warm-up yesterday. They wanted to put him in the squad today, but in the morning the doctor said that he could not. They did everything for him to come out and be on the bench, they wanted to release him for the second half, but he could not enter the field.

– You haven’t scored at this stadium for five games already. What is the reason for such a series and how are you going to solve it?

– Maybe you’re right. We had a good game here with Zorya, we scored goals and we had to not lose that game. But it happened the way it happened. Probably, the guys psychologically broke down in the last matches. We had chances in every game, but we didn’t use them. We will work, there is a transfer window in winter.
