Valery Karpin said he hoped to define the classification “on the playing field”

Valery Karpin, coach of the Russian national football team, today showed his disenchantment with FIFA’s decision to suspend the team he manages from international competitions and stressed that he hoped that the qualification to the Qatar 2022 World Cup would be settled “on the field of play.” We expected that the qualification to the World Cup (Qatar 2022) would be settled on the playing field. It’s a shame for the players who dreamed of that possibility and now have lost that hope,” said the 53-year-old technical director. However, FIFA’s decision to sanction the Russian Federation, marginalizing its various teams from all international competitions, will deprive the 2018 World Cup organiser of a repeat four years later.” To say that the coaching staff is disappointed with the decision that FIFA made is to say nothing,” lamented the former Celta Vigo player, in a document sent by the Russian Football Union (RFS). I hope that the sanctions of FIFA and UEFA will be lifted as soon as possible and that Russian football will return to the international scene” was excited Karpin, who wore the shirt of his country’s national team in the United States 1994 and Korea-Japan 2002.In the same sense, the RFS described as “unfair and discriminatory” the ruling issued by FIFA that marginalizes the selection of his country from the next World Cup, following Russia’s invasion of Ukrainian territory, a fact that took place last week. The body that governs football in the Russian territory stressed that the intervention of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will be “necessary” to resolve the issue.
