Given that the team already has a 34-year-old Denis Glushakov, the club relied on veterans.
There was information that Khimki wanted to rent from Fiorentina Alexandra Kokorina, but did not pull half of his current salary, and the striker did not agree to a reduction.
According to the information that has appeared, the Italian club was ready to pay half of Kokorin’s salary. If he goes on loan to Khimki, the club will pay the other half. This is a standard scheme for renting a football player. But, according to information from various sources, Kokorin’s salary at Firentina is 250 thousand euros per month. Half of this amount “Khimki” did not pull.
If it were still possible to agree with Kokorin, here you have almost half of the Russian team of the 2015-2016 sample.
Football agent Dmitry Selyuk believes that the bet on “deserved” veterans is wrong and nothing good awaits Khimki.
– What is happening in Khimki depresses me: they signed Zhirkov, Mamaev.
It would be better to contact Sasha Mostovoy, asked to resume career Arshavin, and add to them Evgeny Serafimovich Lovchev, it would make more sense.
But seriously, I think that the direction chosen by Khimki is a breakthrough towards the FNL. Yura Zhirkov is a decent guy, he himself said that he could end his career because there are big problems with his leg. I’m not sure these newbies will play. Now the load will go, Yura will be treated, then recover. Mamaev will be treated, then recover. He played two matches in Rostov.
This begs the question: why did you sign such players, just so that they had money for treatment?
