“That’s the reality of the salary cap.” Radulov’s agent explained the hockey player’s salary cut

Agent Alexander Chernykh, representing the interests of the newcomer ““Lokomotiv” Alexandra Radoulova told about the reasons why the hockey player’s salary was reduced when he joined the Yaroslavl team.

Radulov is 37 years old. On Thursday, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl announced that they had signed the player on a one-season contract.

— Magnitogorsk head coach Andrei Razin said in an interview with that Radulov is no longer the same and it is better for him to move on to training. Did these words hurt Alexander?

“Maybe Radulov even missed it. It’s unlikely he saw this, because now he’s training hard. Yes, I haven’t seen it either. Well, Andrei Vladimirovich thinks so. Perhaps he wants the KHL to quickly develop a galaxy of new coaches. And it would be more interesting for him to compete with them. Or maybe Razin saw that Radulov could strengthen a club, making it more difficult for Magnitka in the new year. And I thought, “To hell with it, he better go into coaching.” »

— It’s surprising that Radulov had a lot of doubters this offseason.

— There really wasn’t one. Only one is a pseudo-journalist, and the rest are adequate people. They do not communicate with space, but live on Earth. And real experts understood that Radulov would certainly strengthen some KHL clubs. He will help any team, and the main thing is to make the right choice, find the right combination of three and build relationships.

— Radulov’s salary increased from 90 to 70 million rubles per season. Realities of age?

“That’s the reality of the salary cap. We just couldn’t get in there. If we had addressed this conversation about moving to Lokomotiv earlier, then yes. But we thought maybe something would work out with Kazan. There’s a child, everyday life and all that. However, when Ak Bars told us that everything was already done, we started negotiations with other clubs. Even though they had already expressed interest, we waited.

— Can we say that Alexander earned money to get the Gagarin Cup?

— Radulov is always focused on results. He doesn’t like to lose anything. You know him! And he always plays in clubs that set the highest goals, that is, they aim for the Gagarin Cup. This has always been the case – from Salavat Yulaev to Lokomotiv. He wants to be a champion. “Everything else doesn’t interest him,” Chernykh told .

Radulov played for Ak Bars Kazan last season. For the team, he played 58 games in the KHL regular season and scored 40 points (16 goals and 24 assists), and also scored a goal and assisted his teammates three times in four playoff games.

Radulov previously played in Russia for CSKA and Salavat Yulaev Ufa, and also played in the NHL for the Nashville Predators, Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars. As a member of the Russian national team, he became a two-time world champion.
