That’s it, it’s over: Kokorin in Sochi. Abandoning your words and principles

Russia. Premier League RFPL Zenit Sochi Kokorin Alexander
They sold it.
The story of Kokorin’s rental in Sochi lasted more than three weeks. And finally it was all over – the footballer still leaves for Sochi for a few months.

Initially, the conflict arose due to the fact that the decision to rent was made by the top management of Zenit. Kokorin was not going to leave. Three weeks went tug of war. Two teams were hacked:

1) Those who were for the rent (mostly high-ranking people): the top management of Zenit, Cherchesov, Boris Rotenberg, State Duma deputy Lebedev. Through the press (and not only) they pushed Kokorin’s move to Sochi.

2) And those who are against: the player himself, his wife, stepfather, Semak, Zenit partners – in general, his closest associates. Kokorin flatly refused to leave for Sochi, flew to the training camp with Zenit-2, and even made his debut for the team.

But the story did not end there. Kokorina wanted to pick up half of the RPL clubs. And “Zenith” indicated a firm position: we will not let go anywhere, except for “Sochi”. This was confirmed by authoritative sources and the owner of Sochi, Boris Rotenberg.

Kokorin said that the future depends only on himself. The stepfather conveyed the words of a football player who confidently said that he would not go anywhere.

But then something happened and – Kokorin in Sochi. Nobel Arustamyan and Gennady Orlov said that Kokorin was waiting for a new contract from Zenit, and only after signing it was ready to go to Sochi.

***

The exact reasons for Kokorin’s consent are still unknown. But it’s obvious that Alexander refused his words, from the words of his environment and family; refused a principled position. His rental in Sochi has been extended. He goes there because he needs to.
