He has talked about many topics and we are singling out some parts of the interview.
The journalist has asked Mikhailov about the arrival of the French star Earvin Ngapeth.
“He is a professional and understands why he came to Zenit. If the player didn’t want to be here, didn’t understand his mission here, then he would not come over to our team. First of all, Earvin understands all of this. It’s important. We have a common goal and it doesn’t matter to us who will be on the court. We are ready to help newcomers on the court and in the locker room,” explains Mikhailov.
How do you like Ngapeth’s rap?
“We listen to it in the gym. What can I say, he is a talented person. I am not a fan of rap, but the bits are good.”
Many athletes invest money in a different business but don’t advertise it. You officially announce the opening of a guest house in Sochi, linking it with your name. Why?
“I want to develop it as a small sports facility. So, the people would come and do some kind of beach training, asking me for an advice.”
It was much more profitable to open a tavern and you invested in a center with family values and proper nutrition.
“Our main goal is quality care. I want people to come to us and not only to leave money but to enjoy it.”
Is it hard to be a businessman?
“In psychological terms, that’s not easy. It is necessary to follow the reviews, to fix what people don’t like, make some inventions in marketing. In this regard, I’m having a headache but I have a partner who does a lot and without him, it would be difficult to think about this business.”
Also, there were some more topics about the World Championship, Zenit Kazan, his family but we singled out these answers… For the rest, you need to visit the website of Zenit Kazan.
