Head coach Stanislav Cherchesov has denied that he agreed with the defenders of CSKA Vasily and Alexei Berezutski their participation in the 2018 world Cup.
“I really personally went to CSKA Moscow, talked with the players. It was before a match with “Zenith”. Before I came to the stadium “October”. There, we talked not only with brothers but with other – Akinfeev, Golovin, Goncharenko. But at that time the situation remained the same as before. Nothing has changed. To date, this information (about the consent Berezutski to play for team Russia at the 2018 world Cup) is not true. I would not want to lead people astray, and Berezutsky put in an awkward position,” – said Cherchesov in an interview with the online edition of “championship”.
