Tiknizyan is the star of spring-summer in the RPL. Will he really go to Europe?

Date: May 23, 2024 Time: 09:53:17

In the fall of 2021, hardly anyone could believe in such a scenario. Loko was criticized for buying Tiknizyan and Maradishvili from CSKA. The first cost up to 5.5 million euros, and no one understood the meaning of such expenses. Nair did not stand out from the rest of the RPL full-backs, he did not show anything outstanding against the background of the general madness in the new club.

Now everything has changed. The main data that confirms this is five goals in six official matches in which Tiknizyan played. Crazy story for a flank defender. He launched the streak at the end of May: he scored Dynamo and Torpedo, then Latvia in Armenia and Rubina’s match with Ural.

And he showed himself as an all-rounder: he calmly moved from defense to midfield, was as aggressive and useful as possible. It is not surprising that they began to talk about him in the context of leaving for Europe. Also, there is interest.

In Loko, Tiknizyan was criticized for being too emotional. But Rangnick called it a top transfer.

Nair moved to CSKA’s Loko along with Maradishvili. According to unofficial information, they paid about 12 million euros for both. It is curious that the club commissioner at that time, Ralf Rangnick, rated these transfers as top. Naturally, this raised questions. It also fell on the players. The main associations with Nair during the first autumn in Cherkizovo are “imports” and uncontrollable emotionality. For example, the Europa League game with Marseille, where he picked up two yellow cards in the 57th minute. Of course he was disappointed. After all, they immediately remembered the money that was spent on it. Here’s a quote from the player for Match TV.

Nair Tiknizyan

Lokomotiv defender

“The first month after the transition, I myself was scared by the amount for which Lokomotiv bought me. Then I read all the comments under the news and took everything to heart. It all affected my mood. I was inspired that this is wrong, I can’t take it that long. But then again: what are the claims against me? I didn’t run around with a price tag on my forehead, they say, buy me for five million euros. I did not beg anyone on my knees for this transfer to take place.

During the spring, he received two more reds, he began to play less. He turned out to be back at the base only in May. But from that moment on, Tiknizyan did not give up his place to anyone.

There was stability, something changing coaches often looked for in a player. True, sometimes it was impossible to cope with emotions. But it was more about the fans. Many people remember Tiknizyan’s sharp answer to the question about the unsuccessful results: “Shut the fuck up, you are being hysterical. When we win four or five games, I’ll see how you’ll talk, ”such a comment got into the frame. Then he apologized. But he asked not to offend the players. However, there were a minimum of claims to the footballer himself. Rather, it was about team results.

After joining the club, Galaktionov made it clear that Nair’s status would not change. In addition, there was an additional responsibility – Tiknizyan received Armenian citizenship and made his debut for the national team at the beginning of 2023. Now we really need to be more restrained.

Since the beginning of the year, he has also been the main player in Loko. Nothing has changed this season – the defender played both in the championship and in the Cup. Everywhere very efficient.

“What do we feed Naira? watermelons. And joking aside, Nair is in good shape. He plays perfectly in depth, from the edge of the defense and, if necessary, when you need to put pressure in certain areas, he appears as an attacking player on the flanks. He has no problems with this, but for us this is a good option,” Galaktionov said about him.

Now Tiknizyan is being sent to Europe. What are the real options?

Recently, the chairman of the club’s board of directors, Yuri Nagornykh, said that an offer for the defender came, but it did not suit the club.

“According to Tiknizyan, there was a proposal, it was inadequate in terms of Nair’s skill level. If it is suitable, then we will consider it. In other words, appropriate to the price at which Lokomotiv bought it, that is, 5.5 million euros.

You can see that Nair is one of the best Lokomotiv players now. Of course, we will not consider such proposals,” Nagornykh said.

On Wednesday, insider Ivan Karpov revealed that the club likely have an offer from German Werder Bremen. But Loko is not willing to talk about figures below 5.5 million euros, also, apparently, he appears on the Wolfsburg shortlist.

Now the parties continue negotiations. The transfer market in Germany closes at the end of August, so there is time to make a decision. Nair himself will certainly do his best to continue to progress and move up to a more elite league.
