Fakel head coach: "We gave young players a chance in the second half of the match against Sabail"

“We defeated Sabail. Every victory has advantages. It enhances happiness and confidence."

Idman.biz reports that this was said by the Russian Fakel head coach Sergei Tashuyev.

The club's press office received the experienced specialist's opinion on the test match between Sabail and Antalya: "No matter what happens, nobody will be in a good mood if we lose every match. This is where the winning mentality and strength-based sense emerge. It was crucial to win because of this. Our first test in Antalya was the match versus "Sabail". This was the Russian Premier League clubs' first international match of the winter, if my memory serves me well. After a week of training, we had to give the guys a chance to let off steam. There shouldn't be an excessively long gap between games. There is a limit of one week. Two further meetings are scheduled."

Tashuyev also made player changes in the match against Sabail: "In the first half, the team we trusted during the season played. After the break, we gave the youngsters a chance. There were experienced people with them. It was a test match. I liked how we fought. There were many mistakes. Although the result was important enough, the game was not that good. But we started the preparation a week ago. There was enough emotion on the field. We will analyze the game. I understand that it is the first match. Young people did not play badly in the second half, they were happy. We will continue our work."

It should be noted that the Russian club won the match organized in Turkiye with a score of 1:0.
