Ex-CSKA goalkeeper urged RFU not to rush AFC move

Former CSKA goalkeeper Vyacheslav Chanov believes that the Russian Football Union (RFU) should not rush to switch to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

On 23 December, the RFU’s executive committee postponed the decision to switch to the AFC. RFU President Alexander Dyukov said the final decision would be made on December 27 and that the RFU had time to apply for entry before December 31 so that the Russian team could participate in the qualification for the World Cup. world 2026.

– I wouldn’t want to leave UEFA. But now it is difficult to say something, because the final decision has not yet been announced. I would like to stay in Europe; Of course, you can’t wait long, but you shouldn’t rush into such a decision either.

You can take a break, for example, wait for another season, then see what will be on the program. But you can’t wait too long either, because athletes don’t get younger every year. It’s also a mistake to take time off the guys when they can only play friendly matches with foreign teams and clubs. We are waiting for the RFU’s decision,” Chanov said.

Clubs and teams from Russia are temporarily suspended from participation in international tournaments by FIFA and UEFA decisions. The end date of the suspension is currently unknown.
