The coach of Ludogorets Valdas Dambrauskas spoke at a press conference prior to the CSKA-Sofia – Ludogorets match for the Bulgarian Cup.
- Will Ludogorets be cautious or brave?
- Hello. I want us to be active and to find the perfect balance. This match is the first half and the rematch will be the second. We had a long pause but we trained hard.
- How will you prepare for this match?
- We will not be focused on Tsarsko Selo. This is the first match of the new team with the new coach. All characteristics will be different. We will prepare for what CSKA might bring us.
- What is Nedyalkov, Iliev, and Dyakov’s condition?
- They are all in training mode and close to full recovery. Dyakov is likely going to play in the upcoming match.
- CSKA is usually successful against Ludogorets on their home pitch.
- We must not let the past throw a shade on the present. We do not need to think about statistics or the Cup. History is meant to be changed.
- How different do you expect CSKA to be?
- Трябва да сме готови да посрещнем всичко, което ни дава ЦСКА. I expect a different match. The coach is different and we only know the previous one’s methods. When a new coach comes, the mood and the philosophy will be different.
