Nicolas Lomberts wants to hammer in each match and is daily a pizza

the Championship of Russia - a heartrending experience

Nicolas Lomberts has for ever entered the name gold letters in history of the Petersburg club, having given a goal pass to Paul Pogrebnjaku in a match with « Viljarealom » in 2008. Many experts consider that ball as one of the key moments which have defined total victory sine - is white - blue in an UEFA Cup. For a goal of Lombertsu it was necessary to pay by a serious trauma - in full operation it ran into a bar of gate of the rival. In Northern capital it is not accepted to forget such exploits, and today Nicolas uses at Petersburg torsidy a deserved authority.

- I can not tell so definitely. Certainly, there was one more strong club in the Prime minister - league - « Anzhi ». And it becomes stronger and stronger every day. I think that this command can take a worthy place and in the European numbers. Besides, come from the first battalion « Kuban » and « Krasnodar » show very much high quality of game. Therefore I nevertheless tend to that the overall level of the Russian championship this year has raised.

- That becomes defining in rivalry « Zenith » from CSKA in this season: the psychological factor, the physical form or any unknown third component?

- the Psychology and physical readiness, certainly, are important. Also it is necessary to remember that the championship very long. CSKA at first has typed a good course, then hardly has braked. We too type points in opposition with favourites and we lose some points in opposition with « Amkarom ». There is a constant struggle. All time to win very difficult, sometimes there are also points losses. It is a normal course of things. I can tell only that the Russian championship completely not easy walk.
