Meanwhile, according to media reports, the new Director General of the Moscow “Spartak” is sent in the resignation of Thomas Zorn should be Shamil Gazizov. It is expected that his appointment will be announced no later than July 15.
Your thoughts about what is happening in “Spartacus” with “RG” said the ex-striker “red-whites”, the sixfold champion of Russia Valery Kechinov.
The decision to dismiss the General Director of the club for four rounds before the end of the season doesn’t look hasty?
Valeriy Kechinov: When there is no result, everything displeased the fans, the management. And who is responsible for transfer policy, buy beginners for big money? The Director-General. When Corne “Spartak” has spent a lot of money on the till, Stealing, Larsson. Schurrle was taken though in the lease, but he’s paid a salary. Failure in these matters has led to the fact that the leadership decided to ask Zorn. This is normal practice.
Rumor has it that with the departure of Zorn the future of Domenico Tedesco a foregone conclusion. What do you think?
Valeriy Kechinov: you need to look at the result. However, I’ve read and heard that Tedesco dissatisfied with the dismissal of Zorn. Still, they were in the bundle. But as for me – it is necessary to give Domenico to work at least until the middle of next season. If by the time “Spartak” there will be no result, no games, then it will be possible to raise the question of resignation. But while you have the chance to catch the Cup, you need to focus on it.
There game against Zenit away will be. I think Spartak have a chance?
Valeriy Kechinov: Of Course. This is the most important match of Spartak in the season. And Tedesco may also. Who knows – maybe in case of defeat he would be fired before next season. In General, we will see how everything goes.
