“I must say that I sincerely wish “Spartak” to fly in the first division, because when it happened the last time, he got clean, he became “Spartak” as such,” said Utkin on the YouTube channel commentator Timur Zhuravel.

However, he noted that he does not believe the departure of red and white.

Spartak will finish the season not enough, because even if all goes well, a big team and “Spartak” considers himself such, not lives without big problems,” — said Utkin.

After 19 rounds of the Russian Premier League Spartak occupies the tenth place with 22 points. Last time Muscovites were relegated from the top division championship in 1976.

Earlier “Spartak” defeated “Pakhtakor” in the test match.
