Head coach of the youth national team of Ukraine U-17 Olexandr Petrakov admitted that he was upset after he was not allowed to work with the national team of Ukraine U-20.
– It was a shame that you did not give the story of the Champions of the world U-20’s next?
– I am a straight man. Other eyes would start to lower and say, “no, I don’t care.” Of course, I was hurt. In 2015 I come from the world Cup in New Zealand, frankly, I’ve seen what the team will achieve nothing. And so it happened.
Don’t want to say anything but it was innuendo. There was a desire to continue to go with these boys. It did not work, we achieve. Fix it and go on and tear.
I have no patrons there, okay? Put man to work (Ruslan rotan – ed.). This too is logic. Coach took coach that will meet all requirements to play in this scheme, letting people down. Here, too, there is a rational grain.
– The UAF has recognized Andriy Shevchenko best coach in 2019. You were not hurt?
I’m not gonna lie, I was very upset, but the other was not. Me journalists asked: “Who will win: Shevchenko or you?”, Victor Skripnik was still. I ask: “Shevchenko arrived? Arrived. His assistants, too? Yes. So I’m lost.” (laughs)
