90 Minutes of Shame: Dmitry Savin, a ‘Russian Andy Gray’By: Ivan | January 27th, 2011
While Andy Gray being sexist and can’t figure out a decent apology, Russian football fans keep their eyes on the case of Dmitry Savin, NTV+ pundit for Sunday game between Milan and Cesena. Seems that Savin got into studio drunk and gave away his best during live commentary – joking, rhyming and even singing all over the place. He performed a hit by Alla Pugacheva, Russian pop chanteuse, and that was really terrible.
Obviously few of yours can understand what he was saying so I’ll do some transcription for you.
‘Cesena plays rabbit-style football. Hope they play like an aggressive rabbits but they don’t. Actually, you can be a rabbit and be aggressive too… with teeth, you know’.
‘Fabio Caserta looks like a hillbilly to me. Like a man who raids a village looking for a girl. If he finds one, he’ll stay. If not, he’ll leave’.
‘Ibra with the ball. Well, Ibra, show us what you got, you’re a DJ! Show us your new tricks, Ibra, you’re gay! Well, not gay, but IBRA!’
Savin wasn’t fired but NTV+ dropped him from the schedule so we’ll probably never hear him again.
