the experts ‘ Choice is not random. In the 90s Kanchelskis was one of the leaders of the great “Manchester United”, which was coached by the legendary sir Alex Ferguson. In four years at old Trafford, the Russians won seven trophies, including two Champions.

In 1995, Kanchelskis left the “red devils”, where in his position, Ferguson has put the young and talented David Beckham. However, even so many years after the war popular among fans. No wonder they put it on honourable 25th place in the list of the best players in the history of “United”. In an interview with “RG” Kanchelskis said of the transition to Manchester United, leaving Ferguson and that is why more than one of our players did not have the time in one of the best teams in the world.

When the English League was higher – in the 90s or now?

Andrei Kanchelskis: Hard to say. In our time, was a very different football – a hard, uncompromising. The judges gave us to play was a lot of struggle. And now any touch player punishable with a yellow card. Although speed and above, but there are some healthy sports aggression. Came to England many foreigners who brought their own style. Yes, and of foreign coaches in the Premier League more than enough. What hasn’t changed is the perception of the football. Love him in the same way as in our time. Where they honor the tradition and the fans like it.

Now the Agency industry in football so developed that no high-profile transition, without intermediaries cannot take place. And as you passed in “Manchester United”?

Andrei Kanchelskis: there was a man who worked in a Swiss company. From him I learned that Manchester United wants to call me. They needed a right midfielder, they’ve been looking for player for this position. This even Ferguson wrote in his book. In the end the choice fell on me. They watched me for a few months and made an offer. And I, as you know, never could abandon that option.

Your most memorable moment at Manchester United? Two League titles, victory in the FA Cup?

Andrei Kanchelskis: First game at old Trafford. He then had a capacity of 40 thousand, its not rebuilt, was standing room. Against us – “Nots County”, and I recognized the best player of the match. Agree, not a bad debut. Of course, the memorable victory in the FA Cup final in 1994. When the Queen wishes you good luck before the meeting – it’s worth it. In General, there were many happy moments, but bad enough. Some defeats, failures. But such is football life. The other day I watched a film about Yashin. He was uplifted, loved, and then after one error all s, and he became an antihero. Then back again. This is our share of athletes. There is no way that all exactly took place.

know that you are the first player in the history of Prime��R-League in structure “Manchester United”, who managed to make a hat-trick in the championship match?

Andrei Kanchelskis: I Honestly don’t know. My friends constantly send some statistics, but I’m not too interested in her. I only know that I was the only player to have scored in three of the top UK Derby – Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.

More fans of “Manchester United” has put you on the 25-th place in the list of the best players in the club’s history.

Andrei Kanchelskis: Fans of Manchester United I love almost all players who played for their favorite team. They all remember. It is encouraging. Although fans of “United” and sometimes I remember that later in his career I played for Manchester city. They are enemies after all.

With someone from the former partners in the “Manchester United” or “Everton” communicate?

Andrei Kanchelskis: I often went there, when not coached. I now always invited to England for some activities. Sometimes met at old Trafford, visited the matches. But every day to call someone – it is not. If you need to get tickets or a t-shirt, autographed book, I can draw people, and they’ll do it. This is no problem.

Sir Alex not too early gone? He could still train?

Andrei Kanchelskis If he was in Manchester United – the club would be much more order. I heard in the British press talk that he wanted to return, but that would be wrong. Just leaving means leaving forever. I think he was early left the post of coach. A few years could work to win a championship.

Expected that Manchester United won’t be able to recover after the departure of Ferguson?

Andrei Kanchelskis No. But the fact that there are problems, – it is clear to everyone. There’s a look at Arsenal. Left Arsene Wenger and the club lost its former position. When the whole system is built on one person, and he leaves a small collapse is inevitable.

the last time Manchester United criticized for the failed transfer policy. I agree with these experts?

Andrei Kanchelskis In some ways they are right. It is also one of the consequences of the departure of Ferguson. When you buy a player there is always some risk, even if it is top-level. Ferguson was wrong, too, but rarely. He had flair, he was doing really well. I admit that the people in charge at Manchester United over the transfers, I can’t find those players that should benefit the team.

who else from the Russians, in your opinion, turned out to prove himself in England?

Andrei Kanchelskis: Arshavin did very well. He was lucky to get into such a big club like Arsenal. I would have said Harina. Chelsea then not so good, as in recent years. The team floundered in the middle, in the relegation zone, and many times rescued. If we talk about the rest��x guys, then Pavlyuchenko and Smertin something worked, something not. Zhirkov is not playing at Chelsea. But here a lot depends on what team you’re going to what coach.

You are lucky in this respect?

Andrei Kanchelskis: Yes for Me. Manchester United played in the same football that Dynamo Kiev under Lobanovskyi. The scheme was 4-4-2, the emphasis on the flanks. We have players on the edge, the main task was to pass down the flank and kill the first defender. But if you have more improvisation there is, it’s all cool. It turned out as I wanted. I often went to the middle and scored. In my position differ 14-16 times a season is a good result.
