Rapid is an aggressive team, so we very carefully approach the issue of determining the composition and participation Stepanenko in the match. Because we don’t want him to get hurt.
Part in the match Fred? Tomorrow he had to go to Paraguay to give evidence in the doping scandal, but this meeting was postponed to a later date.
To date, no official documents, something forbidding, did not occur. He is presumed innocent and can play.
