- speak, you wish to get the fifth. It is truth that with you communicated from “ Saturn “ also suggested to redeem club?
- Truth. On me left in the end of the last year. With official representatives “ Saturn “ conversation was not, communicated through intermediaries. Interest to the Russian football at me was always and it does not cool down. Conversations on possible acquisition of this or that club from Russia were and earlier. Frighten, of course, some nuances. Baskakov, for example, - Romanov grins, remembering a match 3 - go a selection round of League of champions AEK - “ Harts “ in 2006 - m when, according to the businessman, the Russian arbitrator has frankly condemned its command. “ could not present such refereeing in the most terrible nightmares, - has acted then Romanov with the statement on an official site “ Harts “. - the Arbitrator has openly told to us that we have not paid to it for any game in Liepae, and consequently it us now “ will bury “. - I can not suffer secret football!
