My father worked for the KHL. His son, a Latvian hockey player, throws mud over Russia

Latvian striker for the Swedish club Rögle Rodrigo Abols said that he would not agree to play in the KHL for any money. And since the Latvian plays in Sweden, the cult question of the Kid’s character to his parents from the everlasting work of the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren “The Kid and Carlson” immediately arises: “Even for a hundred billion?”

Today, Latvian hockey players and coaches are rare in the KHL or VHL. And yet some representatives of this small, but sometimes very noisy country work in Russia and even in the KHL. However, in Europe there are periodically upstarts who must certainly declare themselves stronger. This has little to do with sports, but you can amuse your indefatigable ego by delving into complex political issues. But going deep into it is half the problem, you also need to lean on something.

“Since Latvia is in NATO, we shouldn’t worry, but it’s scary when Moscow is ten hours from Riga by bus. My grandfather didn’t serve in the army, but he fought the Russians in other ways. You could offer me here and now 10 million to play in the KHL, I would not go. This is blood money, and I have absolutely no interest in making friends with the people who go there,” the Swedish edition quotes Abols as saying.


This Latvian hockey player recently with his national team, due to the fact that Russia was excommunicated in hockey from world tournaments, won the “bronze” medals of the World Championship. Historic achievement for Latvia. It would seem, sit back and rejoice, but no, Abols decided to go through the agenda, having no special knowledge in geopolitics. For some reason, both NATO and his grandfather, who somehow interfered with Russia, were intertwined in his speech. Sometimes it’s better for athletes to keep quiet.

The problem is that, unlike Rodrigo, his father Artis Abols worked in Russia for a long time. The son seems unaware of this. It turns out that either Abols Jr. lost sight of this detail, or vice versa, in this way he tries to justify his father. In any case, for our league, this is an episode that doesn’t deserve much attention. Yet another stupidity, which so “appropriately” fits into the general scheme of the speeches of some figures.

The well-known Russian specialist Vladimir Krukunov gave his assessment of the Latvian words.

“I know his father, he is the coach of the national team. His son plays well, he performed in one of the two links at the last world championship, where the Latvian team won bronze medals. Regarding his statement, he has a normal salary in Sweden. Also, that pressure on the father will start immediately, that’s why he says so. So they are all normal guys in Latvia, ”the honored coach told TASS.

And here one can disagree with Krikunov, because Rodrigo Abols said too much nonsense to the Swedish edition. If he somehow wanted to cover up for his father, he could get away with general phrases, or even remain silent. In the end, no one prevents Abols Sr. from continuing to work as an assistant to the head coach of the Latvian national team Harijs Vitolins, who, by the way, also worked for many years in the KHL and even in the Russian national team.
