Torpedo vs. Traktor 3:1. Press-conference after the match
Valery Belousov, Traktor’s head
A very interesting matchup for the fans. We had a decent showing in the first period; however, Torpedo was seemingly more motivated than Traktor and managed to get the win. Besides, we lacked forwards tonight.
Vyacheslav Ryanov, acting Torpedo’s head coach:
I agree with my counterpart; my players were very motivated tonight, and I thank them for the victory.
Question to Ryanov: Have you made any changes to the team already?
Ryanov: I’ve only had one training session, so it’s still hard to say. Of course there will be some changes, but for now I cannot tell you which ones.
Question to Ryanov: Are you staying at team’s helm until the end of the season?
Ryanov: Yes, I’ve talked to Torpedo’s CEO, Mr. Oleg Kondrashov, and he has expressed his 100% confidence in me.
