Spartak legend urged people to "flee" from Russia as soon as possible: he was called a rat
Legendary Spartak Moscow footballer Egor Titov has called on young Russian players to urgently leave the aggressor country and move to Europe. The 2002 FIFA World Cup participant noted that there is no way for athletes to progress and improve their skills in Russia.
Titov said this in a commentary to Sport24. The former Russian national team player noted that the level of the country's championship has fallen dramatically due to the ma outraging the fans.
"We have to run if we can! Run as fast as possible. We have no progress. We all see how much the level of our championship has dropped with the departure of foreigners. Even if there are options, we have to go and try," Titov said.
Readers of the Sports.ru website have lashed out at the ex-footballer. They expressed confidence that Titov would soon become a foreign agent calling for the betrayal of Russia.
"To run away? Is he urging us to be rats?", "Who will need them in Europe? Th clubs of the Champions League level do not need them! What nonsense!", "What the f*ck is this guy talking about?!", "Future foreign agent", "Another one. It is you and others like you who are supposed to promote this very progress. Run away and don't come back", "What does this foreign agent think he's doing?", "Here it is, the true Spartan spirit! Only runners," they wrote in the comments.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the International Football Federation (FIFA) has made an official decision to allow Russia to return to the tournaments.
