Cherchesov: We respect and accept our team captain's decision

Russian national team captain Igor Akinfeev has announced his retirement from the national team today.

Stanislav Cherchesov:

- Igor Akinfeev has announced his retirement from the Russian national team today. He served the national team faithfully and with dignity for many years. We respect and accept our team captain’s decision. I am confident that it was a well balanced one. I had a meeting with him yesterday to discuss the situation and he clearly explained the motives behind his decision to step down from th enational team. That is how things are now but we all know that everything is possible and the doors to the national team are never shut for him. I wish that igor continues his performance for CSKA and shares his huge experience with younger partners. We are always happy to see him.
