Brazilian central midfielder Bitello shared the emotions from his debut goal for Dynamo in a tough Cup game against Krasnodar (1:1, 2:4 – on penalties).
— Congratulations on the debut goal. Did you expect to score your opener at Dynamo so quickly?
— Thank you very much. I've worked hard for this, so yes, I expected it. I am very glad to score my first goal for Dynamo.
— You played the entire match. What can you say about your conditions?
— I'm a little tired, but I think it's okay. In Gremio I often spent 90 minutes on the pitch. So I have already adapted to the loads and I am ready to play full matches. Thank God that I managed to score a goal and help my team.
— How you already found an understanding with new teammates?
— Everyone helps me – Diego, Fabi, Luis are constantly giving me tips on the pitch. I already understand some words myself, so I keep adapting.
— The team created a lot of chances today. What was not enough to win in regular time?
— I think that we lacked a little patience and cold blood in the final third. This prevented us from finishing our numerous chances.
— You have already played two matches in Russia. What are your first impressions of the level of the opponents?
— It was two very difficult games, so I can say that the level of the opponents is very high, as well as the whole championship. Unfortunately, we could not achieve a victory in these matches. Now we have to work hard to win the upcoming derby against Spartak.
