Azerbaijani national team defender Mahir Shukurov admitted that Berti Vogts was on the edge to come to Makhachkala for the match between local Anzhi and CSKA Moscow on Matchday 2 of Russian Premier League.
“It is a very big pity that I was sent off in a match against Amkar. Now I should miss an encounter against CSKA. I know that Berti Vogts was planning to come to Makhachkala to watch my game versus CSKA, but now his visit is cancelled” – he said.
But Shukurov thinks he didn’t deserved two yellow cards that he received in one minute. “I think it was the way that referee wanted to congratulate me with Novruz. But I didn’t like it. I was thinking that football in Russia is much tougher that in Azerbaijan and it seems I was wrong” – he says.
Mahir Shukurov was sent-off because of two cautions he received in one minute in a match against Amkar. He is going to miss next match of Anzhi against CSKA Moscow. Russian NTV Plus Channel declared Shukurov as an antihero of the Matchday 2.
