Former footballer of the Russian national team Kuznetsov: Alexey Miranchuk needs playing practice This advice to the player in an interview with the Lenta.ru correspondent was given by the former CSKA and Russian national team defender Dmitry Kuznetsov.
“As far as I know, Miranchuk looks great in training, but does not get a chance in games at all. I think it's only a matter of the head coach. He does not see the Russian even as a substitute player and prefers other players to him, “Kuznetsov said.
In his opinion, Miranchuk should speak frankly with the coach of the Italian team, Gian Piero Gasperini. “You need to understand how the specialist sees his future in the team. In any case, I would not advise Alexei to return to Russia, he can progress in strong European championships. It is important to find your team in which the coach will trust him. Miranchuk definitely needs playing practice, without which he will not help the Russian national team, “added Kuznetsov.
Miranchuk has played seven matches in the Italian championship this season. He has appeared in the starting lineup twice, and has appeared on the field only once in the last six meetings. The Russian came on as a substitute in the 77th minute of the game against Venice (4: 0).
