“I don’t believe it and I don’t think it’s true.” Esipov on the charges against Niederhaus in the match-fixing case

Former Rotor footballer Valery Esipov in an interview with , he said he did not believe the veracity of the accusations made against his former teammate Vladimir Niederhaus .

In early February, media reported the detention of 55-year-old Niederhaus in Minsk on suspicion of fraud. Later, the Moscow District Court of Minsk issued a verdict in the case of the organization of fixed football matches, imposing a fine of 185,000 Belarusian rubles (about 5.5 million Russian rubles). The former Rotor footballer’s last job was with the Belarusian Shakhtar, where he served as deputy director for sports issues.

“Have you been able to communicate with Vladimir Niederhaus lately?” Were you able to unravel the story with the charges against him in the Soligorsk Shakhtar “agreements” case?

– The details could not be understood. The last time we spoke with Volodya was after New Years. I was shocked when I heard all this, because I have known Niederhaus for a long time.

The country is full of rumors, God forbid, we will meet and discuss everything alone face to face. But, of course, the situation is unpleasant. I don’t believe any of this and consider it to be false, but we’ll see how the authorities decide.

There is always a dark side to winning. Someone will always come up with it and say something, and many will believe it. Therefore, it is better to trust what is said firsthand.

– During the hearing, Niederhaus said he had health problems. Do you know anything about it?

– I can not say for sure, because I worked in the Crimea lately, I could not see myself. And he didn’t answer the phone. May God grant him good health. I want to believe only in the good,” Esipov said in an interview with .

Niederhaus played in Rotor in 1992-1997 and 1999, twice became a silver medalist in the Russian championship and once bronze.
