The coach of Ludogorets Pavel Vrba gave an interview for the club website and the club TV. The Czech specialist shared his expectations for the upcoming game against Botev (Plovdiv). He commented on the match against Arda played on the Lauta stadium on Wednesday.

- Is the team ready for the upcoming game?
- Of course. We learned our lesson from the match against Arda. I want us to perform better from now on, just like we did in the home games.

- Do you face any player-related problems?
- Not everyone is involved in the training sessions. Some of the players are following an individual training regime due to different problems. I believe everyone will be available for the game against Botev. There are a few days we have on our disposal.

- Do you think about changes in the team composition compared to the match against Arda?

- We analyzed the game and we realized our attacking power is not as it should be. I don’t have the final team composition yet. We will think about it but I did not like what I saw in the last game.

- Did the analysis tell you why the previous game ended with an even score?
- Everyone expects us to win such games but I saw we were not active in our attack. We had a good presence in front of the competitor’s gate. We need to change that.

- Ludogorets has already played four games after the season was resumed – two trial ones and two official matches. What is your comment on the team’s performance?
- It is not a pleasant situation. We had a really long pause but it will all come together eventually. We will gradually reach a normal level. I am happy to see all the fans supporting us. The football mood is alive. Football is becoming the game we love again all over the world.

- When will Ludogorets be in top shape?
- It is hard to answer that. The situation is tough but we have high ambition and we will chase our goals. We will make it happen.

- After three months of continuous pause, the teams around the world were probably affected. What do you think?
- The situation is equally hard for every single team in both Bulgaria and Europe. Things will go back to normal. I miss the audience. I love seeing full stadiums. I hope the football atmosphere will be what it used to be soon.
