Sergei Lushan: The Strong Personality and Players’ Extensive Experience gave Al Ain Advantage over Bunyodkor


The Coach of the Uzbekistani Bunyodkor Team, Sergei Lushan, emphasized that they were beaten on their ground by one of the best teams in Asia. In fact, Al Ain FC is far better than Bunyodkor in the present time, a matter proven by the reality. During the match, we sought to get the best possible result due to playing with ten  players as Akram Kolimov received the red card after the minute 70, but Al Ain FC demonstrated a strong personality and extensive experience through its distinguished tactics, so it deserved to win the game.

Responding to a question about the penalty kick through which Al Ain was able to the score the winning goal, he said: “In fact, I watched the foul within the penalty area, and I think that the referee made the right decision. We should not think too much about Al Ain match, as we are required to prepare ourselves well for the next games in the national and Asian competition.”
