The captain of the NHL club “Washington Capitals” Alexander Ovechkin called the striker of the Moscow football club “Locomotive” Artem Dziuba weak and refused to fight him. After a successful match with Dynamo, the player answered “Match TV” for a joke.
He stated that he forgave Alexander Ovechkin, and again invited him to enter the field to “hang out”.
“With such a cute belly, he can afford it. But today he saw who is strong and who is not,” said Artem Dziuba.
Alexander Ovechkin visited the Dynamo training base and supported the team before the meeting with Lokomotiv. Forward Fedor Smolov invited him to enter the field and “hang out” with Artem Dzyuba, but he refused – he said that the Lokomotiv forward was too “weak”.
The match of the 29th round of the Russian Premier League took place on May 28. Lokomotiv beat Dynamo 4:2. Artem Dzyuba acted as the captain of his team due to the absence of Dmitry Barinov. The forward signed a contract with Lokomotiv until mid-2024. The writer Platon Besedin predicted its success.
