Akinfeev said that he did not come across direct offers from foreign clubs. He noted that he saw no reason to leave for Europe for the sake of “sitting on a bench.” He also explained the refusal to help football agents.

“An agent for finding a club in Europe? No. And I’m glad I didn’t have them. If I had one, I would not have spent 20 years in my own club and won titles with him. Would I be a Manchester United star? Anything can be. But I chose this path, ”said 35-year-old Akinfeev.

“For me, no United or Arsenal will ever stand next to CSKA,” he added.

Akinfeev is a graduate of the army club. He has been playing for the Red and Blues since 2002.
