We’d probably go to the beach, too.
– There are no specific plans?
– We enjoy freedom. We had passed a long, difficult season, and I couldn’t even relax during breaks because of the national team matches, because Andrei Shevchenko was counting on me in the tire, and it’s good to take a nap now. I can rest for three or four weeks, my wife and I come and go, we are together.

I try to look at the good side, I’m glad I’m really healthy.

– Because it was the hardest. Not because the competitors were going to press us hard, as we were the first to get a large point advantage, but in the fall we were on a forced rally that was very difficult to achieve in this balanced way. At the beginning of the season there were difficult matches, starting with the battle against Sweden’s Djurgarden, followed by the Scottish’s Celtic and Dynamo Zagreb in Croatia, while we also had to take care of the tournament so that we did not lose many points. We managed this mission so well that there were no matches to be won. Therefore, we are past a special season.
Have you thought about what it would be like to play against Barcelona, Juventus or Dynamo Kiev in front of the crowd in the group stage?

– Did you change the shirt with someone?
– No. Before the group tour, I told myself that I am only willing to exchange shirts with someone we won at the meeting. So I kept my jersey to myself.
