“They don’t change horses at the crossing.

Igor had a good career for CSKA and became a legend of the army club.

Therefore, it makes no sense for him to go somewhere and change something.

He already won everything and achieved everything in life, ”Metaratings.ru quotes Masalitin.

He also stressed that if Akinfeev left somewhere from CSKA, it would be the European championship.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper signed a new contract with CSKA in May until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Akinfeev joined CSKA in 2002.

As part of the army team, he spent 716 matches, 302 of which he defended to zero.

The goalkeeper became the national champion with CSKA six times.

He is also a UEFA Cup winner.

Earlier, the former head coach of the St. Petersburg "Zenith" Vlastimil Petrzhela offered Akinfeev an interesting option to continue his career.
