Anzor Kavazashvili: "Lunev got demoralized and..."

"When Andrey appeared in Zenit and played well, I mentioned Lunev and Selikhov as the two best goalkeepers. At that time, they performed well in the Russian Premier League." informs that this was said by Anzor Kavazashvili, the former goalkeeper of the USSR national team.

The 84-year-old football veteran expressed his opinion about the Russian goalkeeper of Qarabag Andrey Lunev: "But later Lunev got demoralized and did not play for a long time. After that, nothing happened. His desire to go abroad showed that he wants to show his skills in the best clubs in Europe. I am sure he made the right choice by leaving. Lunev was able to prove himself abroad."

Kavazashvili also touched on Lunev's choice of Qarabag: "I must admit that when Andrey left Bayer, I thought that the other goalkeepers pushed him out of the team, and he decided to go to a place where football is not so developed. But now Lunev is chosen as the best. Therefore, the goalkeeping school of the USSR has not been exhausted, it has passed to Russian goalkeepers."

It should be noted that a 1+1-year contract was signed with Lunev, who moved to Qarabag in the summer of 2023.
