The coach of “Admiral” criticized the game of Latvian striker Eliseev after the defeat of “Spartak” in the KHL

Vladivostok head coachAdmiral » Leonid Tambiev explained why his team lost to Moscow”Spartacus ” in the KHL regular season game, and spoke critically about the play of Latvian forward Nikolai Eliseev.

On Tuesday, the Admiral lost to Spartak in the Fonbet KHL Championship away game – 1: 2. All goals in this game were scored in uneven compositions.

– There was a lot of wrestling and martial arts, but the special teams decided everything. The opponent scored two goals for us in the majority, and we scored one,” Tambiev told a press conference. – Fought to the end. But the “nickle” was not ” ate”. “Spartak” simply did not let us go. There were a lot of rebounds from the opponents’ goalkeeper, they had to score.

– “Admiral” in this match deserved at least one point?

– It was an equal fight, we gave a lot of strength, the initiative passed from hand to hand. It’s difficult to give such matches. But with only one objective how to win?

— How do you rate Admiral’s first games in the KHL championship?

— There is a formation of the team, it is not a quick process. Sometimes I like the game, a controlled team. Five out of five play normally. But in the minority, we struggle.

– Latvian striker Nikolai Eliseev has positioned himself as one of the future leaders of your team. But so far he has no points. Is it the lack of training that bothers him because the IIHF hasn’t transferred his transfer card to your club for a long time?

– Let him understand why he can’t score points. You can always find excuses. I believe Eliseev needs to be increased in his devotion. Not through the site on clean ice to ride, but to climb over the gate. That’s when the goals will go.

Previously, the Saeima of Latvia had banned athletes from their country by law from participating in tournaments in Russia and Belarus. The Latvian Ice Hockey Federation did not want to give transfer cards to two hockey players who signed contracts with KHL clubs: goalkeeper Janis Kalnins d’Amour and Eliseev. However, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) later issued transfer cards to Russian clubs. Eliseev in 2022 played for the Latvian national team at the Olympics and the World Cup.
