“Nothing out of the ordinary happened.” Arshavin reacted to UEFA’s decision to withdraw the Kazan Super Cup match

Union of European Football Associations (UEFA ) was not surprised, having decided to postpone the match of the Kazan Super Cup, the bronze medalist of the European Championship in the Russian team told Andrei Arshavin .

UEFA announced on Wednesday the postponement of the 2023 UEFA Super Cup match from Kazan to Athens. The capital of Tatarstan received the right to host the match in 2020. The trophy in full-time confrontation is contested by the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League.

“Nothing extraordinary happened. If we don’t participate in European competitions, then nobody would have allowed to organize the Super Cup. It is strange and surprising that such a decision was taken only now , and not sooner. Apparently they forgot that the Super Bowl was to be held in Russia.

The Champions League was canceled immediately, nothing has changed since then so the verdict is natural,” Arshavin told .

– Do you believe that Russia will get the right to host the European Cup final in the future?

– If we participate in European tournaments, why not? UEFA and FIFA were delighted when Russia organized tournaments, there were positive evaluations. The main thing is to start playing in European competitions.

In February last year, UEFA and the International Football Federation (FIFA) suspended Russian clubs and teams from participating in international tournaments due to the situation in Ukraine. The 2021/22 Champions League final has been moved from Saint Petersburg to Paris.
