Kaladze hits Saakashvili's goal2011-12-14 19:38
Kakha Kaladze, who has left the post of the captain of Georgian national soccer team in protest against the regime of Mikhail Saakashvili, responded to the allegations of the Football Federation. He was reproached for the politicization of sport and the lack of a sense of duty. But he could not do otherwise at the time when his friend and colleague George Demetradze is in prison on ludicrous charges, when Kaladze's business is pursued by the authorities for his friendship with Bidzina Ivanishvili and the police keeps all the people, who vegetate behind the beautiful facade, built on foreign loans, at bay.
Kakha Kaladze has repulsed the accusations of the Georgian Football Federation (GFF) of his irresponsibility. Bureaucrats did not like the fact that the fullback declared his desire to withdraw from the Georgian team, in which he played for 15 years and was its captain, not to the coach, but to the public, gathered at the launch of the new movement "Georgian Dream", created by oligarch Bidzina Ivanishvili. "Member of the National team, especially the captain, must realize his duty and responsibility, especially when he makes a public statement about leaving the team", said in the statement by GFF.
Minister of Sport of Georgia Lado Vardzelashvili also found it necessary to make snide remarks about Kaladze. According to him, Georgian national team is not a party to simply leave it. "Playing in the national team is prestigious for any player, and player must earn the right to play in this team", he added for some reason, as if Kakhaber has not earned this honor.
How many Georgian players of world renown we know? Who else but Kaladze can boast that they had held the UEFA Cup in his hands twice? After the second victory, in Georgia there was even issued a postage stamp with a portrait of soccer player. He was recognized the best player of Georgia five times. He is the champion of Italy, the holder of the European Super Cup and world champion among club teams. The truth is that he has managed to score two own goals during one match. But the fullback has already apologized to his fans for this, saying: "Let those (politicians), who constantly scores own goals in their country, appologize too".
Kaladze is one of the last students of the Kiev coach Valery Lobanovsky. Even playing for the Italian team - at first in "Milan", now in "Genoa" - he glorifies his country.
