Head coach of the Russian national football team Stanislav Cherchesov expressed his condolences on the death of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father and coach of the champion of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“We planned to meet and talk with Khabib at the CSKA – Spartak match, but he didn’t manage to attend the game then. We agreed on Saturday, already at the match between Spartak and Tambov (to be held on July 4). I even prepared an autographed ball for him. But, unfortunately, the meeting will have to be postponed again, because today we learned about the sudden death of his father, an outstanding coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. Habib is an athlete and a man, I am sure that he will cope with this test. I express to him and all my relatives my deepest condolences, ”quotes Cherchesova Sport24.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov died on Friday, July 3, at the age of 57 as a result of complications caused by coronavirus.
Minakov previously stated that Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was a very strong person.
