For example, in the morning my wife needs a car, but I only have one at the moment: they can pick me up for training. And so that there is communication, some kind of contact. Go somewhere together, eat and talk. However, it plays a role in team cohesion.

— Someone rented accommodation to former SKA players. Did you find the same thing?

— No, and to be honest, I didn’t want to film with one of the hockey players. Well, you know, it’s even more responsibility. God forbid, what happens – then there will be questions for me. And if you rent an apartment to a person who is not a hockey player, then you can sort out the situation on the sly, without worrying about it at work.

— Is the rent more expensive in St. Petersburg than in Omsk?

– Much more expensive.

— The club doesn’t pay for your accommodation?
