Sergei Lavrov Spartak its like homeland it is not chosen

sports society “Spartak” on April 19 will celebrate its 85th anniversary. Sergei Lavrov is one of the most famous fans of “red-white”.

“For me, “Spartacus” is more than a team, is that even during the most difficult negotiations helps to find emotional balance. “Spartak” with me my entire adult life. Other teams never had. In my understanding “Spartak” it’s like homeland, it is not selected,” admitted the foreign Minister, whose words cites RIA Novosti.

Lavrov recalled that he became interested in football in elementary school. Then he went to his grandparents in Noginsk situated near Moscow, and near the house was the stadium of the local “Spartak”.

“I’m a fan with the experience, but the interest has not waned to this day. I must admit, I miss football in this difficult time, when you can neither watch nor to play. When there is any tournament with the participation of Spartak await every game with anticipation and great interest”, – said the Minister.

“If you are in Moscow, we try to be at the stadium, and in other cases move away from the screen for the whole match regardless of time zones,” he added.

Lavrov admitted that he has no distinguishing characteristic of the fans, however, according to his companion, “statistics “Spartacus” subject to my live visit one or another of the game leaves much to be desired”.
