Post: Coach Rubin appreciated the work of referee Opeikina in the Russian Cup match


Rakhimov praised Opeikina’s refereeing with the words: “You can’t tuck like a man”

MOSCOW, November 1 – RIA Novosti, Sergey Fuks. Rashid Rakhimov, the head coach of the Kazan team, said that referee Vera Opeikina was trying to prove herself in the Russian Cup match between Rubin and Lokomotiv Moscow, and that he should be more measured when communicating with her.

On Wednesday, in the sixth round of the RPL Russian Cup group stage, “Rubin” lost 0:3 away to “Lokomotiv” and came last in Quartet B. The referee managed the match. The team led by referee Opeikina.

“I think Vera tried very hard, tried to show her best side. In my opinion, there were moments when she could not interpret it quite correctly, but everything went both ways. A woman cannot be pushed like a man (laughs). Here Rakhimov told reporters: “You can understand both words and “You choose the expressions because you need to understand everything,” he said.

“The first half determined everything and we lost three important elements; we did not fight well, we reacted badly in the transition phases from defense to attack and we made too many mistakes. When this happens you lose the structure of the game. The second half was more or less normal but the result was already clear. Today there were a lot of changes in the squad “It happened, but that doesn’t mean anything. We can’t say we won points. But there are many players. They had the opportunity to prove themselves, we failed to slam the door, we were already eliminated from the cup, analytics are important now,” he said.
