Igor Cherevchenko in the post-game press-conference spoke about the game against Mordoviya (0:1), resuming it.
- It's a pleasure to start the new season with a victory. The guys were well-prepared physically. This means we worked properly during the camp in Austria. If Skuletic hadn't score, the team still would have been able to score a goal. I'm satisfied by the result. The match will be forgotten, the result not. Regarding Mordoviya, they're a good team.
- Boussoufa and Fernandes stayed on the bench.
- There is a limit. Samedov and Tarasov couldn't have took part in the game. We had to make strict choices.
- It seemed that Lokomotiv started playing slowly.
- We had some chances in the second half. I link this to the quality of the pitch. You need to settle down into this kind of field."
