In December, it became known that Alina Zagitova decided to suspend her sports career. After that, Eteri Tutberidze accused Evgeni Plushenko of enticing athletes. Ilya Averbukh believes that the coach's claim to his competitor has long been justified. She literally sounded the alarm and shouted that her athletes were being taken away, but there are many pitfalls in this matter. Soon Alena Kostornaya and Alexandra Trusova left for the husband of Yana Rudkovskaya. The choreographer noted that Plushenko is doing the right thing to some extent, because he is trying to develop his academy. The proverb fits this situation that if you cannot resist the movement you need to lead it. However, Tutberidze says everything is correct. While athletes are waiting for medals, they are ready to do anything, and when they receive trophies, the situation changes dramatically.
At the same time, Averbukh noted that there should be certain rules, otherwise those who are subjected to blackmail by the coach from the side of the wards will simply start to be afraid to go to the rink. Athletes may begin to threaten the mentor, and in case of heavy workload, spread false information about him, which is wrong. The skater admitted that he considers it correct in this situation to introduce a clear transfer window. For example, an athlete can make a decision on the transition 2 months before the end of the season. In this case, situations of force majeure should be registered separately.
You can also use personal contracts. For example, a coach promises his ward certain success, in return the athlete is obliged to fulfill all his requirements. According to the star choreographer, people should be responsible for their decisions, and mentors should understand how to proceed in the future.
