Former Russian national football team player Igor Ledyakhov described the situation that has developed in Spain due to the coronavirus pandemic. His words are quoted by Championship.com.
“In Spain they waited until the last, they did not believe that such a thing could come here,” Ledyakhov emphasized. A former footballer noted that there weren’t enough masks, gloves and tests at local hospitals. “This is some kind of nightmare,” he added.
Ledyakhov also said that in Russia they were better prepared to spread the infection. “Compare what is happening in Italy and Spain with Russia,” he concluded.
According to recent data, more than two million cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded in the world. Spain is in the top eight countries in terms of the number of cases. It also includes Italy, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.
Ledyakhov is known for playing for the Moscow Spartak, with which he won the national championship three times (1992, 1993, 1994), as well as the Spanish Sporting Gijon and Eibar. He began his coaching career in 2007. The last places of work of Ledyakhov were Akhmat and Baltika.
