Russia risk riling Spurs with refusal to rest striker Pavlyuchenko

first_imgShare on Twitter Shares00 Stuart James in Moscow World Cup Share on Twitter Share via Email Share on Facebook Topics Share on Pinterest Share on Facebook First published on Tue 9 Sep 2008 19.01 EDT Guus Hiddink has risked igniting a dispute with Tottenham Hotspur by refusing to bow to their demands to rest Roman Pavlyuchenko for Russia’s World Cup qualifier against Wales tonight. Tottenham contacted the Russian football federation last week to express their fears about an ankle injury Pavlyuchenko had suffered but Hiddink, Russia’s coach, last night insisted the striker would start in Moscow and accused the Premier League club of being “overconcerned”.The Dutchman claimed that Pavlyuchenko, who has yet to appear for Spurs after joining for £13.8m on transfer deadline day, had passed the national team’s rigorous medical tests and made a full recovery from the injury, picked up when he was playing for Spartak Moscow last month. That injury is believed to have come to Tottenham’s attention when the 26-year-old signed, but Hiddink suggested the London club were out of touch with the player’s current condition.”There was a letter from Tottenham a few days ago about their worries about the injured ankle of Pavlyuchenko, which was already fully recovered,” said Hiddink, who made it clear he would never select a player against the advice of his medical staff. “[Tottenham] made strongly the suggestion not to play him but I think it’s a little bit of overconcern on their side. If Tottenham didn’t pick a player because they thought he was going to get injured then some players would never play. “By our medical staff it was confirmed that without any risk [Pavlyuchenko] can play and he has proved that already in many training sessions in the last week. He did not fail in one tough session and he was declared medically fully fit. With everyone there is always a danger of injury but there is not an exception for Pavlyuchenko, so he must give what is in his soul [tonight] for the national team, and afterwards he must have his concerns and obligations towards Tottenham.” Hiddink, who appears keen for relations between the Russian football federation and Tottenham to remain cordial, revealed plans to visit White Hart Lane in the near future. He has met Juande Ramos, the Tottenham manager, previously and he indicated a willingness to discuss Pavlyuchenko’s position should it remain an issue. “I am always open for conversation,” he said before reiterating that he had been given “the green light” to name the forward against Wales.A capacity crowd is expected at Lokomotiv Moscow’s stadium, with the Russian public still optimistic after the team’s exciting performances at Euro 2008, where Hiddink’s side reached the semi-finals before losing to Spain. “For the first time in many years I feel there is a connection between the Russian team and the people,” said Hiddink, who believes his players should relish the pressure that now accompanies their status as a leading football nation.The profile of the Wales team is very different but Hiddink was generous in his praise for John Toshack’s side as he reflected on their “energetic and fighting” qualities while insisting Russia faced a “difficult task” in their opening Group 4 encounter. “I know John Toshack,” he said. “We crossed swords when I was at Valencia and he was with Spanish clubs. I know him, I like his way.”Toshack could be forgiven for fearing the worst, however, with six senior players injured and Pavlyuchenko and Andrei Arshavin of Zenit St Petersburg set to link up in attack for Russia on a night when nothing less than a home win is expected.”We know we have a difficult mission,” said Toshack, whose preparations were further undermined yesterday when Sam Ricketts, who had been expected to start, was unable to train because of a virus. “When Russia go forward they’re very difficult to stop. There will be phases in the game when we have to grit our teeth, but at the same time we have our own aspirations and hopefully we will be able to do some damage.” Russia (4-3-3, probable) Akinfeev; Anyukov, Ignashevich, Kolodin, Zhirkov; Semak, Zyryanov, Semshov; Arshavin, Pavlyuchenko, Bystrov.
