Igor Cherevchenko: The training loads still tell

Lokomotiv’s head coach Igor Cherevchenko offered his summary of the 0:0 match with Zenit, which was the opening fixture of the ROSGOSSTRAKH Russian Championship.

«It was the season's first game, and the tension was palpable. Judging by the movement, the recent training camp loads still tell. But I'm happy with the commitment and the desire to win. We will continue improving our play.

As for Corluka, he has some issues with the back of his thigh. Tomorrow we will know more about Vedran’s condition.
We had watched videos of Zenit’s pre-season friendlies, and from their Super Cup clash with CSKA. The Saint Petersburg side look slightly different, performing more as a unit now.

Was it easier to play against Zenit without Hulk? That player is an international star, however this and last season we tied our games, thus it makes no difference to us».
