Mladenović: we needed to score a second home

BATE defender Filip Mladenović commented on the game against FC Slaviya Mozyr (1-0).

- First matchdays are always difficult. We need to be patient and to show the best qualities. It will become better with time. We need just to collect points and the game will come. We could have decided the game earlier just by scoring the second goal. But we failed to use opportunities we had. So the score remained the same.

My goal was great. I received a pass from Zhenya Yablonski and decided to shoot. If you don't shoot you cannot win, right? While the ball was flying into the goal, I was not sure if it would be a goal. Luckily it was. This is not my first right-footed goal. I scored twice for Crvena Zvezda this way.

I devote the goal to my father and my twin-brother who were present at Borisov-Arena today. And our fans as well who supported us today.

I think Slaviya played quite well. I never played against this team, but I can suppose it is a team who deserves the right to play in Vysshaya Liga. They were good in defence and tried to create counterattacks. It was not an easy game for us.
