Irakli Khoshtaria – Dinamo head coach:
Unfortunately, we could not improve all the mistakes, but it’s a sport and during the victories, I told my boys that, there would be a moment of difficulties. Now we need to mobilize, judge correctly, be disciplined. We improved some mistakes, but we still need to work a lot.”
Vladimer Bosniak – Batumi head coach:
“I never feel good, when we loose, especially now. Today we played without our one of the best players – Andrejevich. He has an injury. Except this, we had three technical falls and all these factors have decided the fait of the game. Now, we should concentrate on the next games.”
