Russian President Vladimir Putin joked that he was “one more hockey player,” and said that when he has fewer responsibilities, he may be joining a professional hockey league.

He stated this at a meeting with representatives of the public in Kazan.

“Well, I'm still the hockey player. I still do other work now, then maybe later I will move to a professional hockey league when I have fewer responsibilities in today's place of work, ”RIA Novosti reports the president’s words.

Before the New Year, Putin said that during a meeting with President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in Moscow on December 29, he agreed with him to play hockey and ski in the future.
