Footballer Kakhi Kaladze again talks about motives for decision

Footballer Kakhi Kaladze has once again talked about the motives for his decision to leave the national team. He called the Football Federation’s statement ‘shameful’. He said ‘some say I announced my decision from a political tribune. It is not right. I made this announcement at the presentation of a public movement. Public activists were listening to me. I have worked for them all my life’.

Kaladze called on representatives of the Football Federation not to worry about his relationship with Temur Ketsbaia, as they ‘are good friends’.

As for the motives for his decision, Kakhi Kaladze said he could not play in the national team since his friend Giorgi Demetradze had been illegally imprisoned two years ago.

Kaladze also mentioned pressure from journalists, who had been focusing on his age.
