Kazakhstan coach Gutor: “We are all delighted with the match”


Kazakhstan coach Oleksandr Gutor could finally enjoy a win after his side beat Cuba

Almaty, Kazakhstan, August 17, 2013 – Kazakhstan’s coach Oleksandr Gutor was happy to praise his team after securing their first 2013 FIVB Grand Slam win, with a 3-1 (25-20, 17-25, 30-28, 25-20) victory over Cuba in Pool K at the Baluan Sholak Sport and Culture Palace on Saturday.
 
Oleksandr Gutor (UKR), Kazakhstan coach: “Generally both teams are technically equal, but Cuba just need more experience. We had a plan for today; more attention at group block and we've did that. Compared to our past games, I can confirm it was better today. We are all delighted with the match.”

Korinna Ishimtseva, Kazakhstan captain: “We came to win today. It was difficult and due to bad reception we lost that (second) set.”

Olga Nassedkina, Kazakhstan middle-blocker: “We were fighting for each ball and it really helps to play at home, as there are a lot of fans and we can feel their support.”

Juan Carlos Gala Rodriguez, Cuba coach: “I organised this team for the Olympics. For the preparation of this team, I started with new players. I try to develop their game that is the plan. These new players have to play together more and playing in the Grand Prix is a big opportunity for them.”

Yoana Palacio Mendoza, Cuba captain: “Today, we made many mistakes. We did not do well at the crucial points.”
