Hockey player Ovechkin scornfully assessed footballer Dziuba
The captain of the Washington Capitals National Hockey League club, Stanley Cup winner Alexander Ovechkin visited the training base of the Russian football club Dynamo (Moscow).
In a conversation with Dynamo forward Fyodor Smolov, the question was raised, "whom will we smash." Ovechkin suggested Lokomotiv. When Smolov said that "they just have Artem, and you're knocking around with us," the famous hockey player asked, "why push him," and then added that Dziuba was "weak," reports Sport-Express.
On May 25, it became known that Artem Dzyuba extended his contract with FC Lokomotiv. The athlete thanked the coaches and fans for their trust, and also promised that he would make every effort to fight for the high places of the team next season, "because there are no others for me".
Due to an injury, Dziuba missed the last matches of the “railroad” in the Russian Premier League, but the head coach of the team, Mikhail Galaktionov, said that the player will be able to enter the field in the derby with Dynamo.
