Slutsky glad to be 'still in the game'

Published: Wednesday 24 February 2010, 21.52CET
PFC CSKA Moskva coach Leonid Slutsky had "mixed feelings" after his team drew 1-1 at home with Sevilla FC in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League first knockout round tie. "We're glad to have equalised, but I have mixed feelings," said Slutsky, who was pleased with the performace, if not the scoreline, in what was CSKA's first competitive match of the year. "The main thing is that we're still in the game. I was sure that we wouldn't have any functional problems and I was right."
