Tatiana Tarasova, honored USSR figure skating coach, commented on the news about Andrei Mozalev's transfer from Kirill Davydenko to Eteri Tutberidze's group. According to her, the figure skater made a choice in favor of the famous coach.
"Mozalev worked with a very good coach, they were doing well. Now he wants to train with a very famous coach. What else is there to comment on? Nobody consulted me, why should I discuss it. It happens that athletes want to train with other specialists, if the Ministry of Sport approves it. And, as a rule, no one is against it. We'll live - we'll see," - quotes Tarasova RIA Novosti.
