Iosifov: The coach said don’t be afraid and show your game

19-year-old Lokomotiv midfielder Nikita Iosifov made his Champions League debut in the match against Bayern (0:2).

- It didn't work out the way we wanted. Not very happy with this match.

- What did the coach say to you before you came on the pitch?

- He said: "Do not be afraid and show your game as you show it in training." It is a pity that I did not manage to finish my chance. Will continue to work hard.

- What were your thoughts when you went one on one?

- I got the ball, dribbled past a player and threw the ball forward. I wanted to struck the ball powerfully into the near corner, but the shot was weak.

- Did you feel the pressure that the world champion was running after you, the world champion was standing in front of you?

- I didn’t think of anything like that. The only thought in my head was that I needed to help the team and try to score a goal.
