Movsisyan hints at Krasnodar exit

Striker Yura Movsisyan could leave FC Krasnodar before the end of the season, he suggested to R-Sport on Friday.

Movsisyan’s status as joint top-scorer in the Russian Premier League with nine goals has attracted widespread interest and seen him linked to CSKA Moscow in the Russian media.

Asked whether he expected to still be at Krasnodar at the end of the season, Movsisyan said: “We will have to just wait and see.”

The Armenia striker said he knew nothing of any interest from CSKA.

“I don’t know. My agents deal with that kind of stuff, so I’m not really getting into contact with anything because I have a contract with Krasnodar,” he said.

Last month, Movsisyan rejected any suggestion a move was possible, saying: “All my future is linked only with this team.”

Krasnodar coach Slavoljub Muslin said in September the club “will do anything to retain” Movsisyan, whose contract runs until the end of the next season.

Movsisyan, 25, started his career with the Kansas City Wizards before a move to Real Salt Lake, where he won the MLS Cup. Krasnodar signed him from Danish side Randers last year for €2.5 million.

He has scored five times in his 18 appearances for the Armenian national team.

Movsisyan is joined at the top of the Russian Premier League scoring charts by Alania Vladikavkaz’s Brazilian striker Danilo Neco and Zenit St. Petersburg’s Alexander Kerzhakov.
