CSKA goalkeeper and captain Igor Akinfeev shared the details of the contract extension with the capital club.
“The decision was made six months before. I came to Roman Yuryevich, he said that now such a story on salaries is not only with CSKA. I say: “Money is not important to me, I want to play football. I’ve been here since four and a half years and now sit and tell that I want more money or stay at the same level, it would be stupid, ”Akinfeeva quotes “Match TV”.
The goalkeeper of the army club made his debut in the senior team in May 2003 and in 19 years spent 708 matches in which he conceded 632 goals and left the gate dry 300 times. His contract with CSKA runs until 2024.
Akinfeev in the 2021/22 season was recognized as the best goalkeeper according to the Russian Premier League.
CSKA after three rounds scored seven points and is in third place in the standings.
The army team in the fourth round will play an away match with Fakel on August 6. The start is at 17:30 Moscow time.
Earlier, Akinfeev said that Jikia called him to train his media team.
