Dario Bonetti, Dinamo coach: I’m very pleased with our showing
Dinamo Bucharest coach Dario Bonetti stated after the game that he is very pleased with how his players played. “I can say we had a very good game. Unfortunately we had a slower start. This was the only negative aspect that deprived us of ball possession in the first half. I’m very pleased with our showing, even though in the first half we often made mistakes at very easy passes. We’re trying to improve our game and to play faster, but we have to take into account that we had a very young line-up on the pitch and we need a lot of experience to be able to grow. I have the belief that this game has proven that Dinamo has players with great outlooks,” Bonetti stated.
Cristian Borcea: Dinamo was on par with Barcelona
Former Dinamo FC former shareholder Cristian Borcea stated that Dario Bonetti’s players were on par with the Spanish team. “It was beautiful, Dinamo played very well. I believe we have a team that will fight for the title this season. The atmosphere was extraordinary and I hope it will be the same in all games. Barcelona is a very good team but Dinamo was on par with it today. It didn’t embarrass itself,” Borcea stated.
