– You know Talalaev well, your players played with him.
– Yes, we have known Andrey for a long time, my players played in all his teams – in Tambov, Khimki, Akhmat. Also, I recommended Yaya Toure to start learning Andrey’s coaching profession in Akhmat. And we must pay tribute to Andrei, he was not afraid to take a world famous football player as an assistant.
– “RB Sport” reports that the reason for such a sudden separation of the coach and the club is that the leadership of “Torpedo” for some reason refused to hold a training camp in Krasnodar. The camp was scheduled for a break for international matches. Now “Torpedo” during this break will train on an artificial field in Luzhniki.
– I don’t know what caused it, but even if Torpedo trains on Mars, it won’t save him. It is obvious to everyone that 95 percent of the Torpedo will fly out of the RPL. And even if now the team gets three points after the match in Nizhny Novgorod, where the hosts released a disqualified player, this will not help. “Torch” unexpectedly defeated “Sochi” in the last round. He already has 17 points.
– Talalaev often changes teams. What’s happening?
– Andrey is a competent specialist, but he always acts as a crisis manager, a kind of old Hottabych: he always needs to save teams from relegation. So it was in Samara, then in Khimki, now in Torpedo. Only in Grozny there was no need to think about how not to fly.
There are frequent changes in the management of the club in Torpedo, I don’t have time to follow them. Perhaps a new leader has arrived and is building a new structure for the club.
And as for Talalaev, I repeat, Andrey is a competent specialist, he is one of the few of our coaches who is really in demand. He is a hard worker in a good way, always willing to work. He won’t be out of a job.
Andrey Talalaev led Torpedo in October 2022. Under his leadership, the Moscow team played 12 matches, suffered eight defeats and drew four times. At the moment, Torpedo is in last place, 16th in the RPL, the team has 8 points. Khimki, who is ranked 15th, has 13 points.
