Agent Safonov: If “Legionary lumberjacks” come to RPL, it’s a problem for clubs

MOSCOW, May 2 – RIA Novosti, Vasily Bogdanov. Commenting on RIA Novosti about the foreign player limitation in the Russian Premier League (RPL), football manager Alexei Safonov pointed out that the clubs that invited them were primarily responsible for the emergence of poor quality foreign players.

From the 2022/23 season, the team’s application for the season cannot have more than 13 foreign players (no more than eight on the field). Earlier, former actors of Moscow “Spartak” Roman Pavlyuchenko and Denis Boyarintsev called for tightening the limit.

“We have a normal limit, I don’t see anything wrong with that. If, as Pavlyuchenko said, “lumberjacks” come to us, it is a question not for the “lumberjacks” themselves, but for those who find and invite them. Foreign players like Claudinho or Malcom decorate our championship, Spartak’s I don’t really like Alexis Duarte from tan or Nicolas Marichal from Dynamo. Five in Europe, but due to taxation. The question is also how do we keep quality foreigners until they participate in European competitions that are important to them. Jann M’ Vila at Rubin and I remember Alex Song being able to fly to Marseille on a plane. Weekend private jet, it’s harder now,” Safonov said.
