Dynamo right winger commented on the match with Rostov (2:1). In an interview to Dynamo TV Denis Makarov told how the red card had influenced the team's play and to whom he dedicated his goal.
— Today Dynamo faced the absence of several centre-backs. Did Marcel focus on the necessity to help the defenders more?
— Not really. We thank Seryoga (Parshivlyuk – editor's note), who won many tackles in the first half. We were confident about him and believed in him.
— You scored with a long-range shot in the second consecutive round. Have you already gained your optimal shape?
— I don't know, we'll see. The season will show.
— The team arrived in Rostov two days before the match and managed to adapt a little to the local weather. Did it really help in the game against Rostov?
— I wouldn't say it had any effect. In principle, if we had arrived one day before, nothing would have changed.
— Scoring against Rubin, you pointed to the bench, and today you showed a heart somewhere to the stand or towards the camera. To whom was this gesture dedicated?
— I dedicated the goal to my wife, who had a birthday that day.
— How much did the red card influence the course of the game?
— The red card made a bad impact on us, because we started to play pretentiously. It was necessary to score 4-5-6 goals, we had chances for this, so as not to bring the game to a nervous ending, and leave Rostov calmly.
— After Moumi's goal you pushed him away at the moment of celebration. What was the reason for this?
— On the contrary, I was happy for my teammate. I pushed him to motivate him more.
— At the end of the encounter Dynamo fans had to go through a lot of nervous minutes. Why did the team have such an ending again?
— Well, we like to play on nerves (smiles). I want to thank our fans who came and supported us very well. This is very important for the team. We dedicate this victory to them too!
