“Similarly to what happened yesterday, the side making fewer mistakes is the one that finally wins. Yesterday we did not succeed in fulfilling this mission but today everything went much better. We minimized our errors while our opponents were quite faulty. I have to say that our setter, Valerio Vermiglio, marshalled the team very well and our first-tempo attacks proved to be one of our main assets. It is a bronze medal, probably not exactly what we had hoped for coming here, but it remains a valuable result for our club and my players. It is also a good way to end the European season as we now will fully concentrate on our national league” Zenit head coach Vladimir Alekno commented after the game.
“We played a couple of great teams and since for most of our players this was the first final four, though we end up in fourth place, this is part of a learning process and we do hope that the next time we’ll achieve a better result” Zaksa mentor Daniel Castellani concluded.
