Vladimir Alekno: "Russia is not a favorite"

Bulgaria coach Radostin Stoychev congratulates his Russian counterpart Vladimir Alekno on a second solid victory
Bulgaria captain Vladimir Nikolov: “My congratulations to the team of Russia. Today we really played better than yesterday, but it was not enough to win, though we had a chance in the second set.”

Bulgaria coach Radostin Stoychev: “It was a well-deserved victory for Russia. They are strong in serve, block and attack. Besides they are disciplined and didn’t do mistakes. The Russian team are the favorites in Pool B for sure. We have to work hard to improve and we are going to do it, since we are to play very important matches against Germany.”

Russia captain Taras Khtei: “Our team is happy to get another three points, but we stay concentrated, because matches in Germany and Bulgaria will be more difficult.”

Russia coach Vladimir Alekno: “Russia is not a favourite, we still have to work a lot on our technique. The second set is a thing to discuss and analyse.”
