Igor Akinfeev said that he would not agree to move to a club from Saudi Arabia
CSKA goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev answered a question about a possible move to a club from Saudi Arabia. His words are quoted by Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
“Would you go to Saudi Arabia? No. The best place to end your career is Sochi. Some play for money, others because of the love of football,” he said.
Earlier, Akinfeev agreed with the call of the head coach of the Russian national team Valery Karpin for the players to go to Europe. “I reacted completely normally to these words – let them go. If someone is waiting for them there, then please,” he said, drawing attention to the fact that with appropriate offers they need to go to the European championships.
Akinfeev is a bronze medalist at the 2008 European Championship as part of the Russian national team. Together with CSKA, he won the Russian Championship six times, the national Cup and Super Cup seven times. In addition, as part of the army team, Akinfeev won the UEFA Cup.
