A pre-season press-conference has been held today at Saguramo base of “Locomotive”, where the club officially introduced their newcomers.
The head coach of the team – Levan Koghalidze summed up the pre-season training sessions and talked about their future plans.
“As a head coach of the team, I can give only a positive evaluation to the concluding, two-week session that we went through in Turkey. I am quite satisfied and consider it to have been fruitful. We worked on many things; We tried to refine many components. Our goal is to get closer to the international standards that we are going to face in the qualifying episode of Europa League this summer.
We also received some international experience in the test-matches in Turkey. This will definitely help the team and make us stronger than we were before.
However, before that, the team is to play in Erovnuli Liga, and for now we are doing some intensive trainings for the first round match, which is due Sunday, against “Samtredia”.
I have set just one goal for my footballers: We must be totally mobilized and gain victory in every subsequent game. We will do our best to make it work. As for the result we fight for, will be seen in December.
“I would like to take this opportunity and say thank you to those footballers, who have left “Locomotive”. The successes that we had in the previous season is their great merit as well” – claimed Korghalidze.
