Alexey had to about ten minutes to take a picture or autographs.
“Wanted to be closer to my wife”
-Where is the most common place fans usually ask you to leave your autograph?
– I’m often asked to sign on their chest or back.
– Your wife Nataliya has been playing whole summer while you are on vacation. How is the time without her?
– I went home with my mother and to see relatives who have not seen.
– Perhaps your wife was the main motivation of your transition to “Dinamo”?
– Yes, I wanted to be closer to Nataliya. But other than that, I needed a change of environment. Wanted to work with another trainer.
– They calculated that in “Zenit” that you have already reached your peak?
– I had some problems with the coach, which I would prefer not to reveal.
– Now you have something to prove to Vladimir Alekno?
– Of course, I have. And we all have something to prove, having won “Zenit” (3:1) in the Cup of Russia it was a great win and a great surprise.
– We have read that you may be disqualified for two years for some reason?
– I read about it. This is a rumor from the internet. And I do not understand where they came from.
– “Zenit” – one of the leaders of the national volleyball. Don’t you think you will regret after leaving?
– At this moment I have no regrets. We have young team in Dinamo. Virtually no veterans. I am sure that “Dinamo” has a great future.
– In the summer it was reported that you can change roles and become outside hitter?
– We have discuss this with coach Yury Marichev and I’m open to anything. Perhaps in the near future you will see me at OH.
– By the way, on the weekend all-star last season as a outside hitter you have shown yourself beyond convincing.
– I was playing as outside hitter at the preliminary stage of the Russian Cup in the match with “Oilman” from Orenburg and scored 17 points.
– Don’t you think that this year has shown that the depth of the Russian national team is incomparable with any team in the world?
– Yes. Basically, before you could say so. We have a huge country and a lot of top quality players that can compete with anybody and dominate.
