WISE LEADER

 

- Darn, why didn't I score?! - Alexander Semin greeted me with a question. And then promptly proceeded to elaborate on this thought with a long tirade, which was themed mostly in urological and gynecological terms. The Siberian really wanted to reach the 40 goal mark.

 

As for the request to point out the main reason for success, Semin replied: - I think it is all about the coach. He established the right tactics, and it worked.

 

When I relayed these words to Boudreau, he frightfully stepped back, and on his honest face of a collective farm chairman appeared an expression that may be called “The sow gave birth to... WHAT?!”

 

Semin said that? - asked Boudreau having caught his breath. Well, he hit the bull's eye. I don't know what to say. This is the first quote from Alex I have ever heard. Nevertheless,  I am touched.
