FC Veres Rivne defender Semyon Vovchenko, who is a graduate of the Zaporizhia football school, shared his thoughts on the team’s upcoming meetings with Metalurh Zaporizhia in transitional matches for a place in the Premier League.
“From the duel with Metalurh Zaporozhye, I expect only victory. Zaporozhye is my native city. Therefore, it will be especially pleasant to play against this opponent. Although, this Metallurg is not the club where I once started my career. It has a different, but its own unique history.
By the way, the upcoming matches will be the first in my playing career against Metalurh Zaporozhye. I follow the game of this team. Firstly, this is a club from his hometown. And secondly, my friend Vladislav Dvorovenko plays for Metallurg. Also, at one time, I played for four years under the guidance of the current head coach of Zaporizhia Vladimir Mikitin.
Regarding the strengths in the opponent’s game, I know that they play well from defense. And we will analyze these details in more detail in theoretical classes. The psychological situation in our team is good now. It’s good that we managed to win the final match of the championship. We will now tune in only to win the transitional matches, ”said Vovchenko.
As a reminder, the matches between Veres and Metalurh will take place on June 10 and 14.
