MARKEVICH: “After Napoli fans took off my jacket with a lucky locket”

Former head coach “Dnepr” Miron Markevich told how he managed to build a team that five years ago played in the Europa League final.

“I was lucky with the players. I mean in the last 11 years I worked 9 years in Metalist and 2 years in the river. I wish all trainers were so lucky in his career. Players a responsible attitude towards training and matches – they really were professionals.

The Dnieper was accomplished by a team that I headed. It was required only to indicate your vision. You should give them credit, the team took it. The players took the game and gave their all – this is probably the main one. They believed in me and I in them. It’s worth it.

We did not set. An important role was played what we played in the river, and in Kiev. At the stage of 1/4 and 1/2 the people went, and we played in front of empty stands. It wasn’t easy.

We had to play with teams that were considered favorites. But, I repeat again, we had a team. It was the main. A lot of shade – out and with full dedication played in your football.

Emotions after the victory over Napoli in the semi-finals? I wanted to run somewhere. The fans broke into the field, I don’t even remember how I took off coat. It’s not in the jacket, and that the inside had a lucky locket. I gave him to a children’s hospital.

In the semi-finals had to play kalinic as a striker, but I felt that Seleznev will do the right thing. And in the final set to Kalinic. He scored a goal and played strong. Just Seleznev wasn’t quite ready.

The chances were 50 to 50. Sevilla is a team of experienced. They managed to catch us in a mistake. I already didn’t like Sevilla, we can score, because until the end of normal time was 12 minutes, but themselves to blame.

In the locker room was quiet. I reassured the players, saying that we played decently. It happened, you need to move forward,” concluded Perkins.
