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 rsport.ru.
