Vladimir Tukmakov: «We will play all the matches for win»
Chief coach of Azerbaijan national team Vladimir Tukmakov summed up his team's week-long training session, which took place before heading to World team Championship, which will be held in China:
«I believe, the training will have a positive impact on the play of the chess players. The program of the training session was completed. Now, we have to wait for the result» – quotes azerisport.am the words of the coach.
In response to the standard question of Azerbaijani journalists regarding the match with Armenia, Tukmakov once again reminded that the important thing for him is the end result of the tournament:
«Let us remember the year 2009 — Novi Sad, where Azerbaijani team became the European champion. If you ask, how we have played with Armenians, I don’t think that many will remember that. I do not mind if we lose to Armenia, but win gold medals».
Head coach repeatedly emphasized that in every game without exception, his team will play for win.
