“The players go through the mixed zone, let the referees also give comments every game. I would also do it during the break, but it’s too much. As far as I know, there are no bans on comments and no regulatory documents. I don’t know what the referees are referring to now. I started looking around and couldn’t find a clause that forbids referees from commenting. They probably receive some instructions, ”Alaev quotes “Championship”.

According to the president of the RPL, the International Football Federation (FIFA) and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) do not have a ban on interviewing referees after matches.

“There is a global practice that this is not accepted for certain reasons: emotions, in the heat of the moment, an assessment has not yet been received. One can understand the reason why the arbitrators do not want to comment. If we look at the situation in which we find ourselves, if we want to do this, we should not first of all look at FIFA and UEFA. Russia found itself in a situation where its hands are untied, we can act more actively. For them, we are now in last place,” he said.

Earlier, Alaev shared his opinion on the possible withdrawal of the Russian Football Union from UEFA and the transition to the Asian Football Confederation.
