Maxim Zhigalov, the Russian international and a member of Czarni Radom has talked about his experience in Poland.


“Going to Poland, my wife and I did not know what was waiting for us there: how the life would be, how the city and the team would accept us. Living in another country for a long time turned out to be an interesting life experience. First of all, I did not expect that the Russians and the Poles would be so similar in terms of mentality and personal relationships. To be honest, I didn’t go into any political details when I was going to Poland. I didn’t see any prejudice toward myself as the Russian.”

Then he talked about the period when he was searching for a club:

I had a contract for one more year with Belogorie. To leave, I had to pay a penalty. When my agent managed to reduce it to an acceptable amount it was already quite late – the end of 2017/2018 season. Up to this point, I did not know whether I would stay in Belgorod or not. At that time, Czarni Radom was one of the teams that didn’t complete the roster. The Russian clubs completed the rosters and I wanted to get a stable gaming practice and to try something new. Therefore, Poland turned out to be an ideal option – an interesting championship, an ambitious team, a coach with whom you can communicate in both Russian and English. I am grateful to Radom for inviting me and offering a contract…”

I like her. I think she has improved more than Gunes but Gunes is younger. Maybe that's why she got a 3 year contract instead of Gunes's two. Reply
