Hockey world champion Maxim Sushinsky called the participation of ex-football players Andrei Arshavin, Roman Shirokov, Dmitry Sychev and Alexander Mostovoy in Fonbet Hockey Stars Week 2023 ridiculous.
Fonbet KHL Stars Week 2023 will be held on December 9 and 10 in St. Petersburg at the new SKA Arena. Earlier it became known that Sychev, Arshavin, Mostovoy and Shirokov will become assistant head coaches in the upcoming event.
— Will the players be at the KHL All-Star Game? Funny. But it will attract new fans. Obviously, the league is trying to attract more attention with these methods and they are already succeeding. I don’t see any contradictions here.
Why not see how the football players perform in hockey? Hockey will give them a new impetus in the media space. The KHL is having fun – and doing the right thing,” Sport24 quotes Sushinsky as saying.
