Maxim Trankov: The coaching staff of Eteri Georgievna Tutberidze – Daniil Gleikhengauz and Sergei Dudakov will join the preparation of Tarasova – Morozov. Why did it happen? We needed a coaching staff. At the moment, Eteri Georgievna’s is the best. Therefore, the guys asked these coaches. Morozov is already 28 years old, Tarasova is 26, they make their own decisions, because they are not juniors. All training systems and all details are under discussion. The season has just ended. According to the rules, all transfers are allowed only in May, and now it is April. So, I cannot say anything more concrete yet.
Trankov also commented on the possible continuation of their work with Marina Zueva. Previously Trankov announced that in May the pair plans to go to the United States to train with Zueva.
Maxim Trankov: We’re in a state of negotiations. Of course, we did not refuse (from work with Zueva). This has nothing to do with work, but with the situation in the world and with the opportunity to be in America now. It’s just circumstance. The initiative (of changes) comes more from the athletes, not from me, so you need to ask them.
In any case, the guys need to go to the USA, they have rented housing there, everyday issues will need to be resolved.
