“I liked almost everything, except for Nikita’s injury and the missed ball. I liked everything else,” the club’s website quotes Karpin.
After two rounds, Rostov tops the Group C standings with six points, followed by Dynamo Moscow (3 points), Akhmat Grozny (3) and Orenburg (0).
“Both Dynamo and Orenburg played with non-main lineups – like us. We managed to look at the guys in the game and give them time on the field. Some don’t get so many minutes in the championship. Well, those who play a lot rested,” – said the coach.
