The head coach of the Russian national soccer team has permanently taken his family out of Russia
The head coach of the Russian national football team, Valery Karpin, brought his wife Dasha and daughters Daria (born September 4, 2018) and Alexandra (born April 4, 2020) to Tallinn. Dasha Gordeeva is the third wife of the Russian specialist and is 21 years younger than him. They got married in 2017. Gordeeva also has a daughter, Anita (born in 2010), from her first marriage.
In an interview with Russian media, Gordeeva said that it was a joint decision with Karpin.
"The girls have grown up, we need to prepare for school, plus Anita has been living in Estonia without us for a year. That's why we are coming back. In the summer we will move permanently. We have to get ready for school. We will come to visit our dad with the girls, as we do now," sport24. ru quoted Gordeeva as saying.
Karpin and Gordeeva have known each other for a long time. At the age of 14, Valeri made friends with the girl and even introduced her to his mother.
This girl was the mother of his future wife Daria Gordeeva. Later, their fates diverged, but they continued to communicate, as Valeriy Karpin remained a friend of the Gordeev family. Dasha herself admitted that for 25 years she had been calling Karpin Uncle Valer.
