Russia’s honorary coach Mikhail Likhachev has said what he would like for Russian football in 2023.
– I want to wish Russian football progress, so that despite all the circumstances in which we find ourselves, we do not get carried away and do our job to the best of our ability. One day we will return from the isolation of football and we must be competitive; this is our main task for 2023, Likhachev said in an interview with Sovetsky Sport correspondent Daria Savinova.
Let’s remember that in May of last year it became known that the Russian teams would be suspended from the European competition in the 2022/23 season. In addition, the Russian national team was excluded from the list of participants in the League of Nations, and the country’s applications to host Euro 2028 and Euro 2032 were rejected.
