Andrey Tikhonov: We are preparing for a difficult season

After returning of our team from foreign training camps to Samara, the head coach of Krylia Sovetov Andrey Tikhonov told about the preparation of the Samara team for the season and the upcoming match vs. CSKA.

We had certain areas for work at the training camps. You dont have to look at the results of the trial games. The players were under pressure, and, in addition, we had a group of players on trial who have been training with us. The weather was hot enough, and on the last day we played two games at once and perhaps we were not strong enough at some moments. But we have fulfilled all what we have planned at the training camp - the team had a good workout and held good sparring.

What goals and targets do you set for the upcoming season?

The goals should always be the highest, but we are focused on the actual things. We are preparing for a difficult season. Our team needs serious reinforcement. Only a week is left before the first game and we are still waiting for new players. I hope that we will get the players that we need.

How will the team prepare for the game against CSKA Moscow during this final preparatory stage?

Were planning to work. On July 26, well play a control game against Syzran-2003 at the Metallurg stadium. The team is well-prepared, but the season will show everything. Our fans miss football despite the fact that Samara hosted 2018 World Cup. I think that being under the impression of the event, the fans will come to support us."
