Vitaly Mutko: Arshavin is playing well now for Kairat
Russian Football Union President Vitaly Mutko made a statement saying that Arshavin could still be an asset to Russian national team.
"I would like to see Arshavin playing in the World Cup 2018. Arshavin did a lot for Russian football, helped us to win the right to host a global event. He is playing well now for Kairat, surprising local supporters with his goals. I think he has got chance to make the squad, but that is my opinion. All decisions regarding selection are made by Stanislav Cherchesov, I am not interfering in that", — said Mutko to local newspaper «Izvestia».
