Bournemouth Ukrainian defender Ilya Zabarny shared his impressions of the match against Manchester United (0-1 defeat):
“We showed a good and strong game against Manchester United. It was difficult because we played against a very good team. We’re a little unlucky. In this fight, the support of the fans helped us a lot, they were incredible. This is very important for every player. It was a very important game for me and I felt comfortable on the football field.
Moving to Bournemouth is a completely different level for me. Everything is very fast here: you attack, but in a second you are already defending. You have to be ready every minute. Manchester United attacked a lot, they have a lot of technical players. When you play against the best players, it helps to progress.
This meeting was important in the context of the next season. We have to improve our game, it’s very important.”
