The head coach of the Moscow “Spartak” Guilherme Abascal turned to the club’s management with a request to acquire the 21-year-old defender of “Benfica” Tomas Tavares. According to the Metaratings.ru portal, Abaskal is familiar with the footballer from his work in the Swiss Basel.

It is noted that Tavares is currently playing for the second team. For the main part of the Portuguese club, the defender has not played a single game this season.

Former Red-White football player Samuel Gigot, who plays for Marseille Olympique, said that Russia is still considered in Europe “country from the past”. At the same time, he remembered that in Moscow he often met friendly and very pleasant people.

The leadership of the Russian Premier League is currently deciding on a possible move from UEFA to AFC (Asian Football Confederation). According to RPL President Alexander Dyukov, 100% of Russian clubs were in favor, provided that the transition actually takes place.
