September was the month of two major elections in Russia, accompanied by a somewhat different kind of apathy. The parliament chose with cold consciousness that Vladimir Putin would so easily weaken. The struggle for the post of the president of the football association, on the other hand, was to determine whether the already powerful influence of the sports minister Vitalie Mutka would be strengthened. Inu, strengthened…and what does it really mean?
If I write about apathy at the beginning, its character in relation to the elections to the State Duma is not too complicated to trace. Electoral participation has fallen to 48 percent, the historic low, and the interest of such Moskans has fallen by a whole thirty percent over five years.
“Ot nas nichego ne zavisit”, it does not depend on us – in the spirit of such a slogan, Russia’s new constitution was determined.And with similar consciousness, maybe it will be in two years, when Putin will probably seek the fourth blessing of the people to lead the federation.
The year 2018 will also be crucial for winners of the football presidential election as their winner is primarily tasked with defending the organizing event of the upcoming World Championships and, at the same time, making sure that there is a home selection – perhaps the most extreme participant of the recent Euro – he was not one of all laughs again.
So, in the case of the most powerful man of the Russian football sphere, one can not talk about the true apathy. The interest of the public was enormous, however Mutko favored from the beginning.Gazzaev is also guilty of nepotistical practices when Alanie immediately picked up his only 31-year-old son, Vladimir, as well as his poetic player trading and voices.
Gazzaev’s “micro-corruption” was a public secret in the run-up to the election, and it was almost shockingly surprising if the highest bid for one regional delegate’s vote – just $ 150,000 (3, 6 million crowns).
Neither did Gazzaev’s actions, however, have helped. The head of the second Russian league Igor Jefremov resigned soon in favor of Mutka. He was soon impressed by the president of the highest competition, Sergey Prjadkin.In spite of the lack of initial estimates (up to 85% for the Minister), Mutko finally defended a post that he suddenly came to last last year when Nikita Simonjana was distrustful.
If you already started at this point in your head, be afraid of the alarm, do not worry that you might be alone in it. Yes, Vitali Mutko has actually held the post of the sports minister and the president of the Russian Football Club (just a few minutes ago he was promoted to the prime minister’s representative). Yes, such a mix of political and football interests is in direct conflict with the FIFA statutes. Yes, just two days before the election, the Russian national coach union was outraged by Mutka’s candidacy.The year 2010 brought the worst collective Russian show at all, the so-called home soo-olympics in Sochi was so expensive that all the other games were topped, and this year’s doping show does not need to refresh anyone. While Mutka’s representative at Yuri Nagorny’s ministry was suspended in the investigation, his direct superior had mysteriously escaped any specific punishment, although it was an independent report by a Canadian lawyer acquainted with a personal intervention in a case of a doping foreigner in the Russian Premier Liga (RPL).Russian footballers may have had an unbelievable number of 46 doping tests on Euras in France, but Mutka’s career has only been scarce.
The fact that Mutt’s untouchability can largely be his warm ties with President Putin, today few people doubt. Although Mutko was not born in St. Petersburg or Leningrad at that time, he studied ship engineering and rights to become a representative of the Mayor of St. Petersburg just after the celebration of Christ. At the same time, Putin was also working in the same office, as well as longtime Managing Director of the oil giant Gazprom, Alexej Miller, since 2001.
And so was the fruitful St. Petersburg bond.Already in 1994, Mutko, seven years younger, joined Putin in the framework of the Organizing Committee of Her Good Will – a project that had already disappeared fifteen years ago, but at that time he had great sense and meaning for St. Petersburg as well as Russia. The original essence of Her Goodwill was to correct US-Soviet relations in the final phase of the Cold War, and the St. Petersburg third year was considered an extraordinary success. Thirty new sponsors were added and the infrastructure of the city was greatly improved.Exactly twenty years later, Mutko-Putin’s proven tandem oversaw the organization of the most important Games in Sochi.
The footprint Vitali Mutko left in his adopted home is generally massive and represents the reason why the aura of the Minister sometimes turns unnecessarily into black. The native of the Krasnodar region at the turn of the millennium led the Zenith of St. Petersburg and helped build the foundations of the present colossus.
In 1997, Vitali Mutko took on a relatively fresh first-person subject, who won a ticket to a cup of Europe just four years ago.It was during Mutu’s reign that Zenit was co-operating with the generous Gazprom (although the era of his de facto control of the club was only a few years after the president’s departure in 2005) and immediately upon the start of his not too long Mutko Petrohrad cinderella won a very lucrative contract with a prestigious brand Adidas.
Zenit has captured just one trophy in the National Cup under Mutko’s supervision, yet he will be remembered for his government in a good way – especially due to the well-blooming domestic hatchery. Aleksandr Kerzakov won the crown of RPL shooter king in the last two seasons of the Mutt’s era, and later he worked as a record-holder of the competition, with Andrej Arsavin flying in 2001, complemented by Vladimir Bystrov and Igor Denisov.Certainly, here is no direct influence of the head of the union, but what we will talk about, the image did not harm Mutka in any way.
What has also helped him directly with regard to fresh re-election, it is the fiasco of the ancestors. There was already talk about Simonjana, and Nikolai Tolstych was still there. He was signed by Fabia Capella, who contracted the scandalous clause that allowed the Italian (as opposed to the impoverished RFU) to withdraw from the contract at any time.Good recession, you may say, but almost a million collected signatures are already a solid sample disillusioned.
Cherchassov did not believe much at first. The recent Polish Polish Legion winner with the Warsaw Legion has had good results with smaller clubs such as Terek Groznyj and Amkar Perm, where he could quietly produce his cautious style of play, but in larger Spartacus and Dinama units, Moscow has failed more or less. In any case, the Russian talent under him did not shame in both prestigious engagements, and it was possible for Mutka et al. the main.For the disciplinary offenses, the elite Mamajev and Kokorin were unjustly punished, missing in the selection for the October engagement with Costa Rica, and the past finally portrayed by the long-standing footballers Sergei Ignaševich and Aleksei Berezucki, as well as the experienced behemoth by Dmitry Kombarov. Chances, on the contrary, are refreshing youngsters like Magomed Ozdojev or Aleksi Miranchuk. This contrasts sharply with this year’s Euro, where Aleksandr Golovin paid for only one member (the fourth oldest) expedition of the age of 25 years. The average age of the Russian congregation at that time corresponded to 28.57 years, with only three representatives (and the only Russian native in Fjodor Smolov) boasting gambling experience.However, we have never had such dramatic extinction of foreign influence, so we are currently talking about the ‘golden middle way’ – the 6 + 5 rule that was introduced only last July, just a few days before the new vintage, in the State Duma and Putin’s public appeal.
This year’s discussion opened again and again, according to various speculation, it was about returning to the 7 + 4 format. For the long run, Mutka’s main rival for rival life, RPL chief Sergei Prjadkin, and also the representatives of the two richest clubs, Zenit and CSKA Moscow, The rest of the highest competition is said to be behind Mutko…Nowadays, Borci like Pavel Dolgov or Aleksej Jevseyev are getting on the bench without any problems, while Jan Flachbart and Mark Kinchel – one of the less popular Parsley horses – occupied their seats in the first half of the last decade.
Moreover, it can always rely on a relatively strong tradition of quotas that have proven themselves in other sports. Perhaps the president of the volleyball federation, Stanislav Shevchenko, has previously been told that the introduction of the limits of 2010 immediately took off in the fantastic results of the national team. At the Olympics in London, the men first triumphed from home games in 1980 and the following year of the Continental Cup then followed their Russian counterparts alongside their counterparts.Typical examples are reserved parliamentary chairs for women, for whom feminists rarely see you struggle simply because the ‘need’ to impose these quotas implies that women (in our case, Russian footballers) are not capable of making the placeboards themselves , a normal and fair way.
What’s more, in the final, the Alien Quotas system in Russia produces first of all, they are satisfied stars of the Aleksandra Kokorina type, which moves from one single money (and then usually a collapsing) nesting to the other to make an overpass of Anja Machačkalu and Dinamo Moscow in Zenit St Petersburg, whose bold check this year’s openly preferred foreign stakes in January.
At the age of 24, Kokorin had the perfect opportunity to move to the West, but there would not have been anywhere in the roses.And so he continues to make a pampered home-made smile, which at the same time – and this is absolutely essential – only sporadically complements teasing young men.
This is one of the key arguments for alien quotas – a space for younger blood that can be more easily developed. However, as the Russian Football News shows, this thesis is not confirmed in the Russian environment. Throughout the 2015/16 season, Toke Theilade did not find a single 22-year-old player who would go over 1800 league minutes (20 full-time matches). Any one . There were eight such hopes in the German Bundesliga, just one in Ligue 1 in France, and 15 in Eredivisie in the Netherlands. The second worst number?At the same time, however, clubs receive points for every minute for a home-grown junior as well as any representative invitation for such a bachelor. The more points you have at the end of the season, the more money you have to make out of the bonus money.
Such a relatively benevolent system – based on the rewarding of above-standard units rather than on all braking – was then unanimously approved in Turkey by the entire Süper Lig. And it is hard to imagine that Russian clubs, like the crowd, suffer from financial hardship. However, as we have recently convinced, the first-rank consensus in Russia means little.
