Russian national team coach throws a tantrum over "the shame of Russian football"
The head coach of the Russian national team, Valerii Karpin, was furious that his players were forced to play a national championship match in a heavy snowfall. It was a match between Rostov, which the specialist leads at the club level, and CSKA Moscow.
The meeting took place on December 2 and was accompanied by strong winds and snow, which made the field unplayable. As a result, CSKA players adapted better to these conditions and won 2-0, while Karpin threw a real tantrum after the match in an interview with RB Sport.
"Why was this game held? What was the purpose? What if there is force majeure - it's snowing? A question for the referee. This is a disgrace. A disgrace to Russian football. I told the judge that I was ashamed. He did not tell me why he decided to call the game," - Karpin said.
It is interesting that earlier the match of the 16th round of the Russian championship between Baltika and Spartak (0:2) was also marked by a scandal due to bad weather. The organizers of the match did not have a red ball, so fans and TV viewers could not follow the game on the snowy field.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, in Nizhny Novgorod, before the Russian Premier League football championship match with Ural, a "world record" was set for a round dance in kokoshniks around the field.
