The head coach of the Novorossiysk “Chernomorets” Konstantin Zyryanov spoke about the brawl between Luciano Spalletti and Roman Shirokov while working at the St. Petersburg “Zenith”.
The Italian specialist led the club from St. Petersburg from 2009 to 2014. Zyryanov recalled how Spalletti had a serious conflict with Shirokov at one of the training sessions.
“Well, I wouldn’t call it a fight. So, they pushed around, shouted – each on his own. The most amazing thing is that after the skirmish they didn’t completely quarrel. On the contrary, she turned them to each other. Later they communicated normally, no problems, ”quotes the words Zyryanov portal “Sport-Express”.
Spalletti, together with the St. Petersburg “Zenith” twice became the champion of Russia. Blue-white-blue, under the guidance of the Italian coach, also made it to the 1/8 finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
