According to Sport Express newspaper, a few leading Russian clubs Avangard, Dynamo, and Ak Bars are interested in obtaining Alexander Semin.
A. Semin: Where am I going to continue my career? I don’t know. My agent is working on this question. On Monday after practice a team meeting took place, where the club’s president Moskalev announced that the club’s budget will be cut by 50%, therefore players’ payroll will substantially decrease. It’s hard for me to comment what exactly happened, and why the sponsors refused to finance the team. We were told that the team’s current roster will be broken up. Everyone, who wants, may search for another team. This announcement was a complete surprise for the team. No one knew or could predict that this kind of a thing could have occurred here in Togliatti. Everything was normal, we were preparing for our Wednesday’s game
