Former striker of the Moscow “Spartak” Alexander Prudnikov reacted to the decision of the striker of the club “Znamya” Roman Pavlyuchenko to end his career.
“Well, maybe it’s about time. But this does not mean that he could not continue to play. As we can see, at his age he constantly scored, and scored almost the most, despite the fact that he played in a team with youth, ”Pridnikova quotes “Match TV”.
According to him, if Pavlyuchenko had a desire to continue his career, he would be able to perform at a good level. He also stressed that the striker realized for himself that he needed to end his career.
