Athletistic / Football. Former footballer Andrei Tikhonov shared his opinion on the decision of the RFU executive committee not to join the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). Previously it became known that the organization remains a member of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

“The time will come when UEFA will say: ‘Come back.’ You can go, but you won’t come back. Who cares? [в Азии] waiting for? Japan, South Korea, Singapore, who are against us now? The same situation [как в УЕФА] maybe there too. So I think it’s absolutely the right decision not to move, we are closer to Europe, we will always be there.

Denis Cheryshev admitted that he will return to the RPL at the end of the season

What to do? Wait. We played in Europe for a very long time and showed some results. You have to wait a year, two, three – as long as necessary,” Tikhonov said on the Match Premier channel.
