We have the highest targets - it has to be this way in SKA. Among the coaches there is full mutual understanding, everyone knows their personal and overall responsibility for the results. At the moment, our main goal is to get the team ready for the new season. I'm sure that there won't be any problems with adaptation, here all of us are professionals. It will be a serious pre-season.
