Russia: Russian manager pleased with thumping victory over Saudi Arabia

Russian national football team manager Stanislav Cherchesov held a post-match press conference in Moscow on Thursday, after his side won 5-0 against Saudi Arabia in the World Cup opening match.

"Yesterday and today and the day before yesterday as well as in upcoming days you will see me exactly in the flesh. Whether we win or lose - it changes nothing, for me for example. This is my job. Sometimes it is the source of joy for the fans, sometimes it is not," said Cherchesov, who was accompanied by double-goalscorer Denis Cheryshev.

"I was relaxed yesterday and I am relaxed today because I believe in my players. We believe in what we do. I know the preparation process from within. I know how they interact. As I said it is pleasure for me to work with them," he added.

Asked why he seemed to be relaxed throughout the entire match, Cherchesov answered, "Every coach depends on the team, on the players. This is why I am relaxed. Why should I be nervous?"
