The calendar year 2023 is coming to an end, which was definitely not special in Russian football. The 365 days of 2023 were very similar to the previous ones due to the fact that Russian clubs still do not participate in European cup tournaments, and the Russian national team is forced to replace the qualifying round for the European Championship with test matches with opponents of a very mediocre level. Within the Russian Championship, the competition is exclusively for medals and prize money.
The personal awards of football players, which are awarded at the end of the season or calendar year, have not gone away. On November 20, it became known that the winner of the “Gentleman of the Year” award in Russian football was CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov, who beat out Anton Miranchuk and Igor Kalinin in the voting. This award has been presented since 1993.
Igor Kolyvanov spoke about the winner of the “Gentleman of the Year” award in Russian football.
“I don’t know Chalov closely, but since he was recognized as a football gentleman, then he deserves it. But on the field he really behaves like a gentleman. I’ve never heard rude statements from him,” said Igor Kolyvanov.
