Vasily Karasev: "After the break we could have won the game, but didn't score free balls"

The Zenit head coach on the game with Nizhny Novgorod in the VTB United League.
Василий Карасев: «После перерыва могли зацепиться за игру, но не забили свободные мячи»
We started the match very badly, we did not score our shoots and we did not fight back. Very early Karasev had to come off because of several fouls, it affected us in attack. After the break we could have won the game, but didn't score free balls. Today the performance left a lot to be desired. Plus, when you have five fouls and players on the bench, it is difficult to talk about a positive outcome. 

What did you say to the guys at the break? 

I told the guys to play as hard as possible, because they were giving away fouls. We had to be more flexible and aggressive, but it was not enough. 

How serious is Valiyev's injury?

Now it is difficult to say, everything will be clear tomorrow, after a medical.
