Tatyana Tarasova on December 4 became a guest of the Secret for a Million program on NTV, where she shared her opinion about the conflict between the schools of Tutberidze and Plushenko, and also accused Yana Rudkovskaya of provoking scandals. The famous producer did not remain silent. What the honored coach of the USSR and the wife of Evgeni Plushenko argued about – in the material “MK-Sport”.
What did Tarasova say?
Tatyana Anatolyevna was asked to compare Alexei Yagudin and Evgeny Plushenko . The first, according to the honored trainer of the USSR, was both more artistic and more technical. Tarasova also told about Plushenko’s prospects as a coach: “Well done, now I’m looking – he has good little children. If it works, it will have results. Gradually – not something to take right away. “
A separate topic for conversation was Plushenko’s confrontation with Eteri Tutberidze’s team . Recall that last season, two Khrustalny skaters, Alexandra Trusova and Alena Kostornaya, went to the academy of the two-time Olympic champion, but returned back a year later. According to Tarasova, comparing the schools of Tutberidze and Plushenko is “ridiculous”, because Evgeny is just a beginner coach. But, most importantly, Tatyana Anatolyevna believes that the conflict between the two groups was provoked by Plushenko’s wife and part-time producer Yana Rudkovskaya .
“Maybe Rudkovskaya decided that it would be more useful for promotion. But this is wrong, this is ridiculous. What to talk about? Zhenya has been working for the first year. She does not understand that here it is not words that decide – here work, actions decide. When she understands this, it will not be too late. But she has already ruined a lot for him. I see that it works well, and I state this. And when there is a result, then there will be a result. Why did the skater girls leave Zhenya? Because of the same. “
Appreciated Tarasov and the potential of the son of Rudkovskaya and Evgeny – Gnome Gnomycha : “Yes, he skates well. I think we just need to be silent for a while, be silent for two years. “
What did Rudkovskaya answer?
Plushenko’s wife in an interview with SE responded to each of Tarasova’s claims. First of all, Rudkovskaya noted that “no one lured away either Trusova or Kostornaya” – if Plushenko had not taken them on his wing, they would have found another coach. And Rudkovskaya also said that she did not consider Tutberidze the greatest coach:
“Tutberidze is an excellent coach. She has a super team, they are great fellows. But Tutberidze will become the greatest coach when her athletes will pass not one Olympics, but two, three, four ”.
Rudkovskaya did not ignore the comparison of her husband with Yagudin: “Indeed, where is Lesha and where is Zhenya? And where is the adequacy? Lesha has two Olympics – fifth and first place. And Evgeni Plushenko is a two-time Olympic champion and a two-time silver medalist. I count by the Olympic medals. “
The recognition of Rudkovskaya about the relationship between Kostornaya and Trusova in “Angels Plushenko” was sensational. According to the producer, when Alexandra put the condition “either she or Alena”, Plushenko chose Trusova.
Rudkovskaya called Tarasova’s opinion about the lack of potential of the Gnome Gnome “not fundamental.”
