Russian national football team head coach Valery Karpin is not considering calling up players over the age of 30 as national teams are suspended from international competitions.
“For what? Do you think we have an older player over 30 that we don’t know who is worth watching?” – “Match TV” quotes him.
As soon as official matches resume, according to Karpin, all players will be considered, including Artyom Dziuba, with whom the head coach of the Russian national team has a strained relationship.
“If there were official matches and a result was needed, naturally, for each specific match, we would consider all players. At any age, even at 45,” he concluded.
Russian teams have been suspended from international tournaments since February 28, 2022.
Karpin is ready to challenge Claudinho and Malcolm in the Russian national team
