RODINONV HAS APPEALED TO SPARTAK CUP PARTICIPANTS Теги: RODIONOV TOURNAMENT
Academy President Sergey Rodionov has
appealed to participants of Spartak Cup international junior tournament.
- This year’s composition of the
entry list is interesting, because we have coped to reiterate the group round
of Champions League: Barcelona, Celtic, Benfica and Spartak will play on
Academy’s fields. I’m convinced their confrontation will be as much rebellious
and engrossing as matches involving adult teams. Also English Tottenham and
Dynamo Kiev will fight for Spartak Cup. It’s always challenging to play against
teams from football motherland, and the confrontation of Spartak Moscow versus
Dynamo Kiev is legendary and crucial. The tournament with such entry list can’t
be unexciting, as all teams represent leading European academies, each of which
has got its own philosophy and style of playing.
In my view, in such tournaments every team may assess
its own level compared to high class opponents and draw relevant conclusions,
as well as gain invaluable international competition experiences.
I’d like to thank again our guests, who have accepted
our invitation to participate in the tournament. We’ll try to arrange these
competitions at the high level, hopefully, the games will be held in a friendly
environment, and the teams will demonstrate their best football.
