Trainer-meme spoke about match-fixing in football

Alexander Grigoryan

The former trainer Makhachkala “Anzhi” and Moscow “Ararat” Alexander Grigoryan told about contractual matches in the Russian second League (PFL). It is reported by “Sport-Express”.

“The players in the PFL earn 25-30 thousand rubles, premium — up to 10 thousand. This is not the minimum that can accommodate a grown man. Hence the temptation to play the sweepstakes,” said Grigoryan.

According to the coach, the PFL need a serious overhaul. “When the players realize that such acts illegal, the second League is quickly cleared from totalizatori and filled with players who want to grow something in football to achieve,” he said.

The coach said that match fixing is an anachronism of Russian football. “In order to end this mess, you first need to put someone. Maybe it’s too strict, otherwise it will not work! Otherwise this will be the trifles,” he added.

12 Oct Grigoryan left the post of chief coach of “Ararat”. After leaving he expressed anger and readiness for new work.

Grigoryan is known for extravagant statements, thanks to which became popular in the network. In may, as a coach, “Anji”, Grigoryan gave a weird interview before the match of the 26th round of the Russian football Prime Minister-League “Krasnodar”, saying the word “vandepoele”.
