Speaking to BeIN Sports FR, Krasnodar attacking midfielder Rémy Cabella explained his experience of the Russian 1st division.
“The Russian league is very, very defensive. The teams are less technical and they play a lot more defensively. It is a bit more complicated, a bit more physical. In France I think, the football is much better. But here, there are some good teams too. [Ligue 1 is better than the Russian league] Yes, that is the reality, we cannot lie about it. The Russian league is a lot more physical and a lot more defensive. In France, you try to play a bit more.”
