“If we talk about fans, they have the right to Express their opinion and needs to be dialogue with the management. But they should be sensitive to the decisions of the club management. How many times, starting from Barcelona, Chelsea and real Madrid, the fans began to oppose the transfer or the coach, and then it turns out that they are wrong. Similarly here, the statement of opinion is a normal procedure, and boycotts — is absolutely wrong”, — quotes the words Smorodskaya “championship”.

Semin headed “locomotive” in 2016. Prior to that, he worked with the team from 1992 to 2005 and from 2009 to 2010. Under his leadership, the team became three times champion of Russia, six times won the Russian Cup three times and the super bowl.

Previously Semin commented on the decision of “Locomotive” not to renew his contract.
