The first Russian world champion in women’s singles figure skating, Maria Butyrskaya, reacted to the departure of Alexandra Trusova from Eteri Tutberidze to the academy of Evgeni Plushenko. According to Butyrskaya, changing a coach for a professional athlete is quite common.

In an interview Butyrskaya said that the skater often feels that something is missing or something is bothering him, so he decides to change the specialist. An athlete often wants to try his strength under the guidance of another coach, thinking that the result will be better with him.

According to Butyrskaya, there was confusion between Trusova and Tutberidze. Sasha did not work for long under the guidance of this specialist, so changing the coach is a normal process. Now Trusova will try to prove himself under the leadership of Plushenko. The expert noted that she would not say any nasty things to Trusova, Tutberidze or Plushenko.
