Spartak Moscow striker Jordan Larsson, who now plays for Stockholm AIK, said he did not want to return to Russia.
“There is no certainty yet. I do not know anything. I read in the press that FIFA may extend the permission for players to suspend contracts for another year. And that would be good for me, otherwise I will most likely have to return to Russia. According to my contract, this should happen in 10 days. We’ll have to wait and see what FIFA decides.” quotes Swede Aftonbladet.
He noted that for him the priority is to play for foreign clubs. “But, if there is such an opportunity, I will definitely consider the option of continuing my career in AIK. I’m not here for long, but this is a fantastically good segment for me, ”added the forward.
Spartak assessed the risk of leaving the player after the sanctions of the Polish national team
Larsson said that now there is no dialogue between him and Spartak. “I read in the media that they said I would be back again [в Москву] July 1, but we didn’t talk to them, neither I nor my agent, ”said the football player.
Larsson suspended the contract with Spartak in early April. The agreement with Larsson was suspended until June 30 at the initiative of the player. The Swede became the first foreign player of Spartak, who suspended the contract with the club. Before him, the Brazilian Ayrton Lucas left the Red-Whites, but he moved to Flamengo on loan.
On March 7, the International Football Federation (FIFA) allowed legionnaires and foreign coaches to suspend contracts with Russian clubs and spend the rest of the season in other championships.
