The point guard of MOTOR and the captain of the Belarusian national team spoke with fans about the past Euro 2020. “The European Championship was filled with a sweep and excellent organization.

The task of our team was to get to the qualification of the Olympic Games, but it didn’t work out – to point out the point guard, – besides my team, I also liked the performance of the Croatian national team. They played with all their heart and soul. I’m glad they won the silver. ”
After meeting the newcomer and summarizing the results of Euro 2020, the word was taken by the acting head coach Rostislav Lanevich. The main question that worried the fans was personnel changes in the team. Indeed, on the eve of the club, two base players Stanislav Zhukov and Dener Jaanimaa left. They joined the ranks of the Moscow Spartak handball club. “Is replacement equivalent? From the side of mathematics, probably not – it took two, one came, but here’s a look at the quality of the game. Further matches will show, ”answered the questions of the steering fans of“ MOTOR ”. Soon we will start in the second part of the Champions League. This game, like our fans, we look forward to and excitement. We hope for your support. ”

Zakhar did not refuse and, in turn, invited fans to the upcoming game. “It is very nice to see people in the stands today, and your support at the matches is always inspiring,” shared the leftmost player, “I hope that on Sunday there will also be a full house. We have a good game and maximum dedication, from you – full support in the stands. ”

By the way, he got a devoted fan of the team, whose daughter is also involved in handball. Finally, the fan asked to fulfill the young athlete’s long-standing dream – to break a seven-meter throw into the goal of Viktor Kireev. The goalkeeper did not refuse the request to the fan.
