PARSHIVLYUK AND KIRILL KOMBAROV SAY ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT IN THE HONOR OF THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF OUR CLUB Теги: KIRILL KOMBAROV SERGEY PARSHIVLYUK TOURNAMENT
Spartak school students have shared their opinion on the forthcoming international tournament in Sokolniki (April 17 – 22).
— I’ve participated in similar junior tournaments, but only abroad, - Sergey Parshivlyuk says. – In Moscow the competitions of such high level will be arranged for the first time. In my opinion, this is quite interesting – to play against peers from famous foreign clubs, to test yourself against their background. Furthermore, this is an opportunity to communicate with guys from other countries: to learn how they live and train at their academies. I’m looking forward for the match of the red and whites against Barcelona. As far as I know, young Catalans play the same football and according to the same scheme, as Josep Guardiola’s team.
— Please, remind an international tournament that is the most remarkable for you, when you played for Spartak school.
— In 2006, when I was seventeen, we won the most prestigious Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. Moreover, in the quarterfinal our team defeated Manchester United – 1:0, and I was lucky to shoot the decisive goal. Then in the semifinal we outplayed Chelsea – 2:0, but I didn’t participate in the match and in the final due to my injury.
— What can you tell Spartak fans on the eve of the tournament?
— I’ll ask them to go to Sokolniki and to support our 16-17-year old guys. Moreover, there will be free entrance to the stadium. The competitions are expected to be exiting: Barcelona, Sporting, Borussia, Atalanta and Sochaux – the different countries, the different football styles. In my opinion, this is the excellent idea to arrange such tournament in the year of the 90th anniversary of our club. And young Spartak club members should recompense their fans with sound performance and try to become the winners.
— I’ve have played for Spartak school numerously at various foreign
tournaments, - Kirill Kombarov says. – We often visited various countries, but
during my studies such tournaments had been never conducted in Moscow. And I
have never played against Barcelona. Therefore, I’m sincerely glad that Spartak
club members from our Academy have been given such unique opportunity. It is
essential and extremely useful for 16-17 year old guys to participate in such
competitions. They will get invaluable experiences that will be beneficial for
them in the future. Furthermore, the forthcoming tournament will be interesting
both for fans and for specialists, who may identify young talents here. I’m
sure: such tournaments need to be arranged in Moscow at least annually.
