"He may need crutches." Kokorin’s lawyer on possible implications of footballer’s isolation
According to the lawyer, the lack of practice and medical staff in the detention center may affect the health and career of his client.
Andrei Romashov, who represents Alexander Kokorin in court, stated that isolation is very bad for his client, since the conditions in the detention center are not suitable for professional athletes.
In particular, the lack of practice in Butyrka may have a negative impact on the health of the football player, who recently underwent surgery on the knee joint and Achilles tendon in Italy; now the athlete needs recovery.
“If Alexander Kokorin doesn’t start practicing, he may need crutches,” says the lawyer.
According to him, Kokorin’s heart, like those of other athletes of his level, works differently, so they are slowly moving towards the end of their careers. Romashov believes that if Kokorin is isolated, he may become a cripple.
Earlier, the court extended the custody of the Krasnodar football player Pavel Mamaev, Alexander Kokorin, his younger brother Kirill and Alexander Protasovitsky until February 8, 2019.
