Today Lokomotiv announced Fyodor Smolov. According to some information, the forward has already passed a medical examination at Dynamo.
We spoke with the ex-president of “Spartak” Andrey Chervichenkohow much the main center forward of the Russian national team can strengthen the attack of the blue and white at the moment.
– Radically opposite opinions about Smolov’s transfer to Dynamo. Some believe that the attacker has been traveling from the fair for a long time, his time has passed. And he will only introduce an imbalance in the game of the attacking line of the team. Others believe that Smolov is the very uncle-mentor that any team always needs. What is your opinion?
– Fedya took hold of his head. I don’t know who is “to blame” for this, maybe his girlfriend. It’s about going from the fair. As for the purely football aspects, he will be very useful in the position under the attackers. Fedor himself can score and give a pass to the young fast players of Dynamo, and hold the ball when the situation demands it.
I think Smolov will be of great benefit to the team.
Andrey Voronin, who is part of the coaching staff, apparently sees himself in Smolov when he himself played for Dynamo.
Remember how many conversations there were then: why does Voronin need Dynamo, is he old already? And how did the team play then – Spartak-Barcelona football. Voronin just then played under the attackers. And, perhaps, he decided that Smolov will now be able to play the same role as he did in Dynamo 10 years ago.
Dynamo are now playing aggressive, energetic football. With the arrival of Smolov, the team can play more diversely. What they lack in some moments. Therefore, the transfer of Smolov is a strong move by the club’s management.
