Former president of Moscow “Spartak” Andrei Chervichenko expressed his opinion on the reform project of the Russian Premier League (RPL) from the Russian Football Union (RFU).
“There is a good popular expression about this: when the cat has nothing to do, he licks the balls. I heard that several hundred thousand euros were spent on the reform. You could find in Russia, even ask me – I would probably write this nonsense in a week, maybe twice as much. Another wisdom: when things are not going well in a brothel, they usually change the contingent, not the beds, “Chervichenko quotes. “Championship”.
He noted that in the top leagues of Europe, such as the Premier League, Serie A, Primera, the championship is held in a “smooth” format and this does not affect their level in any way.
“Maybe it’s not the formula for the championship, but the fact that the wrong people are holding it. We have a knockout game – the Russian Cup, and the attitude towards it is pretty cool. This suggests that all the experiments with the playoffs are not very well received by people. People cannot build processes, they try to develop activities where they are not needed. And the formula itself is bullshit. More money for the wind and gifts to European crooks, “- added the ex-president of” Spartak “.
The RFU sent the league reform documents to the clubs under the title “Club Football Reform”, according to which the teams will conduct 24 “smooth” rounds according to the “autumn – spring” system, and then play according to the Swiss system: in the spring, the six best teams play two rounds among themselves and teams from seventh to 16th place one lap.
Earlier, Shamil Gazizov expressed the opinion that the reforms proposed by the RFU are not very suitable for regional clubs.
