Evgeni Plushenko: Many claim that I lured her financially, but her family is pretty wealthy, and they, as many people think, do not need this money. They feel quite well. Moreover, I never had the idea to lure someone.
Two years ago, her dad called me and said he wanted to meet and talk. And he came. Asked “What did you think?” I replied that so far I can’t take her because I have a small rink, we simply won’t be able to train. Let’s think further. And they left to think. And then the time has come when they came to me again and said: “We want to transfer.”
