Berdyev: Levante are great

Rubin Kazan Coach Kurban Berdyev praised Levante for their organisation on Thursday, which ‘proved’ they are ‘a great team’.

The Valencian outfit held the Russians to a goalless draw in the Europa League Last 16 first leg at Ciutat de Valencia.

“Levante are a very experienced team that plays a very organised game,” began Berdyev in reflection.

“They did very well in defence, created much danger for us too.

“We had prepared for a really tough game, we knew Levante’s squad are at a good level and we sincerely believe that they have proven again to be a great team.”
