FC Dynamo Kyiv head coach Mircea Lucescu met journalists the day before the Europa League group stage matchday 3 game against Stade Rennais FC.
- Rennais are really good team of Dynamo level. I know their head coach Bruno Genesio. He’s high-profile specialist.
I’m upset we haven’t managed to find a hotel in Rennes and the team has to leave far from the city. We have a tough situation. Players are constantly on the road, they don’t see their families. But we aim to gladden our fans and Ukraine.
Dynamo are international brand that represents Ukraine, so we must maintain the reputation.
I expect a difficult game, but we need a positive outcome and we’ll do our best for that.
As for our players, everyone who’s come to Rennes is getting ready for the match. Unfortunately, Shaparenko will be out for quite a while, but we can count on Popov.
