Honorary President of the RFU Koloskov: UEFA made the expected decision

MOSCOW, May 2, Andrey Senchenko. Honorary President of the Russian Football Union (RFU) ) Vyacheslav Koloskov said that the decision to exclude Russian teams and clubs from participation in European tournaments next season was expected, but communication with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) must be continued. On Monday, the UEFA executive committee decided not to allow Russian football clubs to participate in European competitions in the 2022/23 season, and the Russian team before playing in the League of Nations. It was also decided to remove the Russian youth team from participation in the European Championship. The women's team will not play in the Euro 2022 finals and 2023 World Cup qualification, and the Russian Football Union's (RFU) application for interest in hosting the European Championship in 2028 or 2032 has been rejected.” An expected decision. Of course, we expected changes for the better “Especially after the words of the head of UEFA Aleksander Ceferin that the players are not related to the current situation. But some time after these statements, UEFA decided to impose new sanctions against Russian football. It must be understood that these methods of forceful pressure were adopted by a collective body – The executive committee of UEFA, and not just one person. The executive committee has a majority of representatives who are unfriendly to us: Scandinavians, Anglo-Saxons and other evil spirits,” Koloskov said. “How to conduct further dialogue with UEFA? The UEFA Executive Committee includes RFU President Alexander Dyukov, I believe he was not present at the last meeting. The possibility of communication still remains. In no case should you be offended and stop trying to prepare a bridgehead for returning to the European family in full,” the honorary president of the RFU noted.
