Averbukh – Klopp, Mishin – Ferguson. Football team of figure skaters according to Gallyamov

Date: July 23, 2024 Time: 03:36:57

Soccer is perhaps the most popular sport among our skaters. At games on the training grounds, during training and even just before performing in the show, the guys regularly kick the ball! There are so many good players among the skating masters that it would be possible to form a complete team.

To form a men’s football and figure team, we turned to the main football player among figure skaters at the moment – Alexander Gallyamov! For the second season, Sasha plays for Chisto Piter’s team in the Media League football team, regularly attends Zenit matches and willingly answers questions about football in the mixed zone.

The world and European champion chose the formation according to which the team would play, assigned a skater to each position, and also determined the coach and even the general manager of the team.

“When we come to Sochi we always play with Fyodor Aleksandrovich Klimov’s group. And Nikita is excellent as a goalkeeper, but for some reason he never has goalkeeper gloves. I feel like the next time we meet, this will be my main gift to him.”

Defense: Fedor Klimov, Nikita Volodin, Alexey Svyatchenko

all – pair skating; Fedor Klimov performed with Ksenia Stolbova for Russia (graduated in 2018), Nikita Volodin performed with Minerva Fabien Haze for Germany, Alexey Svyatchenko with Maria Pavlova for Hungary

“In Sochi I was finally lucky to play with Fedor Aleksandrovich Klimov. When I was skating in St. Petersburg, I was still too young to play football with the elders, although even then I saw that he was a very considerate defender. Now I’ve grown up and learned to play. It is very interesting to watch how Fedor Alexandrovich “reads” the attack. What careful and elegant tackles he has! Looks great. And the central and right backs are Volodin and Sviatchenko, with such an athletic state of form it is very difficult to get around them. And because of their height, they can easily intercept any cross.”

Midfielder: Evgeni Plushenko, Dmitry Aliev, Gleb Lutfullin

all – individual skating; Plushenko officially retired in 2017, Aliyev and Lutfullin are active skaters

“The defensive midfielder is Plushenko, everyone says he plays very good football and I myself saw him skating a little. He handles the ball very well. I think he could take care of the midfield well.

Aliyev and Lutfullin are attacking midfielders. Gleb may very well make the last pass to the forward. In this sense, I am very happy to play with him when I work completely in attack. And it’s great to play stenciling with him. We are very good at playing together. I have known how Dima Aliyev plays for a long time. He can create a scoring opportunity out of nothing.”

Wingers: Alexander Gallyamov, Andrey Mozalev

“Mozalev on the left will brilliantly cross into the box and destroy the left flank. Why did I choose myself on the right? As I am left-footed, it will be convenient to move towards the center and shoot in the style of Arjen Robben.”

Offense: Artur Minchuk, Alexander Zhulin

“I can move to the center and cross Artur Leonidovich Minchuk or make a wall with Zhulin. When we periodically played on the training grounds, he [Минчук]scores in almost every episode, you can get the most out of any pass. And Alexander Vyacheslavovich Zhulin is a big football fan; He and I even went to the Sochi stadium when Zenit played. “He invited us to play football in Moscow, I hope we can play with him as soon as possible.”

Coach: Ilya Averbukh

“Ilya Izyaslavovich said that he had a couple of training sessions with the “Druzhina” team from the Media League. When he was a kid, he usually chose between soccer and figure skating and chose correctly. His experience and understanding of the details, the movement of all elements of the mechanism allow him to easily manage our equipment. Anyone who listens to his comments during the show will understand that he sees the bigger picture. He also has a large collection of baseball caps, as does Jurgen Klopp. He is as loved in St Petersburg as Klopp is in Liverpool. I think they are similar when it comes to managing a team.”

General director of the national team: Alexey Mishin

“Alexei Nikolaevich is a big football fan and often plays with us in the locker room. I’m sure his strategic thinking in football is no worse than in figure skating. He reminds me a bit of Alex Ferguson.”

The girls of the Russian figure skating team, by the way, are also fans of football: watch those same matches during training at the Evgeni Plushenko Academy! It would also be possible to form a full team with the skating champions. And at the head of such a team it would definitely be necessary to put Tamara Nikolaevna Moskvina, who brilliantly played together with Mishina and Gallyamov in her football exhibition number. But this is a story for extensive and separate material.
