Magomed Ozdoev: "I've missed my teammates"
The Zenit and Russia midfielder spoke to us when having his mid-season medical.
Yes, I did get bored. Firstly I've missed my teammates, they have become my friends! Now we need to start the spring season as best as possible and we need to work hard at the training camp.
The training camps can be quite boring and last for several weeks, what is the most difficult thing for you during the camps?
Being away from home is the hardest, everything else is fine.
What nice memories from previous training camps do you have?
Generally, you always remember the previous training camp and I mostly remember Qatar from last year. It was interesting to the country and I was pleasantly surprised, the pitches were excellent and there is a very good training centre.
Where is it easier to train in winter, in hot countries or in Europe, where it is cooler?
It can be cold in Spain or Turkey in the winter and in Qatar last year you had to put on a jacket in the evening, when it was +15 degrees. I think this is perfect, but I like it better where it’s warmer.
