Kochenkov returns to Lokomotiv.

- You've already spent some days with the team. Which are your impressions about the game against Chertanovo?

Igor Cherevchenko: Obiettivo per la stagione - ha colpito nella zona UEFA

In the today's open training in Bakovka, Lokomotiv's Head Coach Igor' Cherevchenko answered to the media's questions. 

- Which are your main aims in this first camp?
- The whole team will be available on 26 June. We need to prepare physically the squad and to have a common denominator. At the same time, I have a link with National teams' players - they've got a program that can help them to prepare for the camp in Austria. 

- Which are the tasks for the next season?
- As usual, we want to be qualified for European football. 

- Pavlyuchenko left the team. Is he a loss?
- Yes, but there many other forwards. We've got a team. I don't want to make a tragedy for the departure of a single player. Pavlyuchenko had a good final of the season, but this is football. Someone arrives, someone leaves. 

- There were some rumors that linked to a possible move of Niasse to Galatasaray. Do you want to keep him?
- I've already spoken with Niasse. Despite wanting to keep Oumar, I can't assure him that he'll be in the starting line up.

- Which positions do you want to reinforce?
- I want to reinforce the central zone.

- Are you thinking to bring fans back to the Stadium?
- Of course, I'd like to see many fans on the stands. If they want, we can meet.

Ruslan Pimenov: "The departure of Pavlyuchenko isn't a loss for Lokomotiv."

According to former Lokomotiv's striker Ruslan Pimenov, the departure of Roman Pavlyuchenko wouldn't be a problem for Lokomotiv. 

"Although the board offered him a new contract, he refused considering his wage would be decreased three times, which is still quite good. This decision probably informed Lokomotiv that his departure isn't a loss. 

I'm sure, he's waiting for a better offer - continued - I think, some clubs with FFP or money problems will be interested in him. Pavlyuchenko can still play for at least two years" - said Pimenov to

Pavlyuchenko leaves Lokomotiv.

Russian forward Roman Pavlyuchenko, who has been playing in Lokomotiv since 2012, will leave the team. Although the board proposed him a new contract, the two parts weren't able to find an agreement. 

We want to thank with Roman for his years in Lokomotiv. He has been one of the greatest forwards in the history of Russian Premier League, winning also a Russian Cup with 'Railroaders'. We want to wish him a good future and all the best in his new team!
