Defender of Arsenal Grigalava appreciated prospects for Kokorin after his release
Earlier, Alexander Kokorin complained of poor health.
Gia Grigalava, defender of the Arsenal club in Tula, spoke about possible prospects for Alexander Kokorin, a football player, after his release. Grigalava played with the Zenit striker in the youth national team. In his opinion, a long-term imprisonment in a remand prison could serve as a motivation for Kokorin and bring him to a new level.
“I am familiar with both the younger and the elder Kokorin. I can say only good things about them. I think Kokorin will reach even a higher level than you have seen,” said Grigalava in an interview with Sport24.
Earlier, Alexander Kokorin spoke about the deterioration of health. A footballer complained of knee pain and difficulty walking.
Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamayev are accused of hooliganism - the players attacked the driver of the TV Channel One in the center of Moscow, and then staged a brawl in a coffee shop on Nikitsky Boulevard, beating the Minpromtorg official Denis Pak. Athletes have repeatedly expressed the opinion that they are being held in Butyrka unfairly.
