The head coach of the white-and-blues Marcel Lichka shared his impressions of the match against OFK Belgrade (2:0) on "Dynamo TV".

— How do you assess Andrey Lunyov's game? How easily did he integrate into the team?

— There were no problems at all. We found common ground with him right away. He tries to play with short passes, building up the game. This greatly helps the team. Right now, there's competition in the goalkeeper's line. There's one game left against Spartak, after which we'll decide together with the goalkeeper coach who will start this season as number one.

— Is it a pleasant problem for you to have a choice among players?

— Obviously, I would like to have 18 high-level players. And at any moment, when I would want to make a substitution, I would know that the player will come on and strengthen the game. Right now, we have four very important players at the Copa America, so the first games might be a bit more difficult for us, but that's football. Today, Fernandez and Majstorovic played well in defense. The young players – Vitya Okishor, Egor Nazarenko, Vanya Lepsky – are showing themselves well and can enter the field at any moment to help the team. For them, it was a good experience.

— We've been waiting for Milan Majstorovic's return for a long time. Now that his condition allows, can we hope that he will get more chances?

— When we were at the winter training camp in Turkey, he wasn't ready to play in friendly matches, and during training sessions, he mostly worked individually. After the season restarted, there was no time to give him chances, so he didn't get game practice. Milan worked hard and tried his best, and now his time has come. Fabi Balbuena won't be available at the beginning of the season, and this is a good opportunity for Milan to show that he deserves a place on the field. In the two Bratsky Cup games, he demonstrated very high-quality play.

— David Trezeguet, who highly praised Konstantin Tyukavin's play and his backheel goal, visited the "Dynamo TV" studio. How would you rate him?

— I only saw that he touched the ball and then there was a ricochet. The main thing is that the ball ended up in the net. Tyuka has already scored backheel goals, in particular, last season against "Sochi". Today he played 60 minutes, and I am satisfied with his work. He tried hard, pressed, and put pressure on the opponent. I think today he took a small step forward.
