Andrey Tikhonov: Sergey Kornilenko earned the title of the best Krylias player of the year

During the broadcast of the radio program Krylia Gubernii the Head coach of Krylia Sovetov Andrey Tikhonov summed up the results of the Samara team.

There have been some negative developments in the past year such as the loss of points and the matches, in which we did not look very good. Of course, there were also positive developments for us and for all the fans, such as victories in the Cup matches. We beat Lokomotiv - one of the best teams of the Premier League, we beat Rubin Kazan in the away match. In these matches our team showed that it can play very well against strong opponents of the Premier League level.

During the season you said that we are now building our team in Samara. How well are Krylia ready for the winter break and how will they be ready for the spring?

Theres no such thing as an ideal team. Only Barcelona in Guardiola's time comes to mind. Fans in Samara understand and love football. They want to see both the result and good game of the team. And we also want to play beautiful football and achieve a good result. It is difficult to get a team in a short period of time, the game of which will suit everyone. Now we have to work hard at the training camps and to fulfill the task that faces us in spring. I want to wish our fans patience. Everything will be fine. Fans must believe in the team and not turn away from it.

Could you name the best Krylias goal, match and football player of the year?"

I'd like to note the third goal of Lokomotiv in the Cup of Russia. The whole combination turned out very good. The best match of the year was also against Lokomotiv. And the best player of the year is Sergey Kornilenko. He deserved this title for his game. He scored a lot of goals and brought a lot of points to Krylia."
