Former Spartak player Movsisyan criticizes Zakharyan’s decision to play for Russia

Former striker of Krasnodar, Spartak and Armenia national team Yura Movsisyan shared his views on the decision of Dinamo Moscow football player Arsen Zakharyan to play not in the Armenian team, but in the Russian national team.

In one of the interviews, Zakharyan admitted that he received an offer for the national team of Armenia, but he refused. From the age of 15, the football player played in the Russian youth and youth teams and finally decided not to change anything.

“What else can you say if he plays for the Russian national team? It is unacceptable to me that an Armenian does not play for the Armenian national team. “But it’s his choice, good luck in the future,” he said.

The footballer, who played 29 Dynamo games in the Russian Premier League (RPL) last season, scored seven goals and made six assists. The Blues finished the season in third place. The Muscovites lost in the final round to Sochi, thus depriving themselves of a silver chance. In the final of the Cup of Russia, “Dynamo” was defeated by the capital’s “Spartak”. The guards of Sandro Schwarz, who recently left the club, lost 1:2 to the red-whites.

Movsisyan’s spoke On the exclusion of Russia from international sports. For him, changing sports citizenship right now is an extreme and bizarre decision.
