Statement from Adil Shukurov on Gabala Stadium: Tskhadadze’s arrival...

"I am grateful to the management of Gabala for helping us to use their stadiums so far."

Kapaz head coach Adil Shukurov told

The home games of Kapaz, which hosted its opponents at the Gabala City Stadium for a while, will be played again in Tovuz. An experienced specialist does not consider the arena change a serious problem: "I personally thank the president of Gabala, Fariz Najafov. For us anyway, that stadium or the other is all the same - an away match. We were ready for this to happen sooner or later. But to be honest, I thought that we will play our games in Gabala by the end of the season."
He said that Ganja city stadium will be fully ready in May 2025: "All our games will be away until our native stadium is ready. Although we will appear formally as the host."

Evaluating the game against Sumgayit in the XXV round of the Azerbaijan Premier League, Shukurov said that his main goal in the match is to fight confidently: "Today, he was ranked in the first 3rd place in the tournament table. Sumgayit has had a successful streak and continues to do so. It is also important for us to win points by fighting well on the field. We are preparing for this as a team."

He also expressed his opinion on the change of head coach in Gabala, which is at the last place in the tournament table and the main rival in the fight to stay in the Premier League. Shukurov emphasized that the team achieved significant success in the periods led by former coach Elmar Bakhshiyev: "This is undeniable. The change of coach - the arrival of Kakhaber Tskhadadze will affect the team, but in what direction and how, only time will tell. There are still many games ahead. In these matches, it is important to gather the team and prepare properly. I think that with the arrival of the new coach, we will continue to fight. Because we are fighting to stay in the Premier League."

It should be noted that Kapaz ranked 9th in the tournament table with 23 points.
