“At the moment, frankly, we see no reason to discuss it. We actually got emails from those clubs. I want to say that the issue is complex. On the one hand, we understand that the “Tambov” this is an opportunity to solve a number of problems, and for “Nizhny Novgorod” to play in RPL at the new stadium”, — quotes the words Dyukov, the press service of the RFU.

He noted that, in addition to the arguments for such a decision, there are reasons not to accept.

“The first question fans of “Tambov”. How to deal with them? Second — we can’t just agree to the clubs that will be reversed, to reshuffle and to break a sports principle. We have questions, we have requested additional information. Waiting for an answer. Based on this information and a decision will be made. Options may be different, but I would not like to comment. There is a variant in which the RFU could agree, but I’m not sure that he will make the clubs,” added the spokesman.

Earlier it was reported that the “Tambov” will change the name in the case of moving to Nizhny Novgorod.
