CSK Samara Had a First Practice In Moscow
On December, 11 CSK Samara came to Moscow after the finishing of the third World army games in Italy. Today in the evening they had first practice in USH CSKA. 12 players will participate in the game against CSKA Moscow. Vladimir Sharko will substitute injured guard Viktor Maltsev.

The head coach of Samara club Oleg Kim couldn’t participate in the practice because he is ill. But he will come to the practice tomorrow. Today assistant coach of the team Sergey Mokin agreed to answer several questions for our site:

You team participated in the tournament in the middle of the season. Have you planned it?

- We planned that we will play in Italy in September, but later it was transferred to December. But I think that it was good international experience for you young players who didn’t play in some international tournaments or cups.

Before the start of season Oleg Kim said that the maximum target of your team is moving to play-off. How do you think now is it really possible?

- I think yes, we have chances. They are quite real. All will depend on us, on our own play.

What can you say about Ulianko and Alexeev who came to the team this summer?

- You know, we always want our players to play better then they are. This concerns to any players, and furthermore to newcomers. They came to us from another league, they need time to adaptation to the play in Superleague A. Of course, they have some troubles, but I think that they will overcome them soon.

Are you going to amplify during this season?

- We want to make our game more strong, play of each of the players. Selection has no terms, it goes all year around.
