The world champion assessed the absence of Russian hockey players at tournaments in one phrase

World champion Zuev said that Russian hockey players were suspended due to fear

World champion and now goalkeeper coach of Krasnoyarsk Sokol Andrei Zuev appreciated the absence of Russian hockey players at international tournaments. His words are quoted by Bookmakers Rating.

Zuev assessed what was happening with the phrase “they are simply afraid of us.” He said that he does not follow the World Cup because he does not see the intensity of passions in it. According to the champion, the wrestling at the championship does not correspond to the level of the event.

Earlier at the tournament, the Russian team was not shown among the three most titled national teams in the history of the World Championships. The video broadcast included information only about the teams of Canada, the Czech Republic and Sweden. Later, the president of the International Hockey Federation (IIHF), Luc Tardif, called this a mistake.

The 2024 World Cup takes place in Prague and Ostrava, Czech Republic, from May 10 to 26. The national teams of Russia and Belarus are missing the tournament due to sanctions from the IIHF. In addition, fans were prohibited from bringing any symbols of the two countries into the stands.
