– There is no big difference – CSKA or another opponent. I don’t care who to play with.

– Spartak have improved under a new coach, but you failed to beat CSKA for the second time in a week. Why?

– We were spoiled by the elimination of the game. At equal game, we were a little unlucky.

No, but of course I know who it is. I would like to be like him. It’s very nice to play hockey for Spartak with such a surname.

– Do you have an idol among modern players?

I try to take a little from everyone. More specific? Sanya Khoklachev.

– There is also a good league, although the speed is a bit higher here. But young players can also progress there. And he returned to Russia, because he concluded a contract in Saryarka and received an offer from Khimik.
