Mikhail Mossakovsky: “Just a year ago they shot a big video with Igor Vasilyevich. To believe that he is no longer there is not yet possible. You still have to get along with this. I have no words”.
Igor Vasilich was unique. And the joker, and the coach, and always with a smile, and with him it was always a pleasure to talk about football, or just like that. I’m not talking about his clips and pearls.

Vasily Utkin: “You were so alone. Never forget you. Never. Gamula left. How bitter. Maybe someone wanted to be more in football. But no one would have succeeded. He came to the TV without teeth. Why was it on TV – a separate question, but he had something to say, and he walked. He stood idle as a coach – and he took any job, he trained RomaRoy’s team on the ISS – because why stand idle … Gamula. So close, so dear … How are we without you now? How can I come to Medvedkovo to play with Egrisi and not meet you, my elder friend, because we have neighboring games – whether I am after you, or yours after us? .. You took any football seriously. You were our Shankly. This is exactly his aphorism. Shankly said – football is not a matter of life, it is much more serious. And Gamula took up any football he saw and invested honestly. Shankly said, and Gamula proved.
After our broadcasts, the guys asked: “Why are you to Igor Vasilich for” you “and not for” you. “I answered, I don’t know, it doesn’t work for” you. ” treated him like a peer and a relative at the same time.Trusted him with any family news and secrets pic.twitter.com/5FFp1giYTW
“Igor Vasilievich … Blessed memory! We will miss the surprisingly charismatic person , ”wrote Artem Dziuba in social networks.
“Well, something like that, Igor Vasilich. I can’t believe it, just a shock! It can not be!!! Vasilich, we will miss you very much … Sincere condolences to family and friends! A blessed memory, “ – said the head coach of the Russian national team Valery Karpin.
The former coach of the national team Stanislav Cherchesov also said his own words about Gamula : “The news is unpleasant, unexpected, even words are difficult to find when such things happen. We often corresponded, we constantly talked at the training camp. He was a good friend, like no one else could criticize in a friendly way, but all his comments were perceived solely as wishes. He always had a good sense of humor. You know, he had something that many did not have. “
Midfielder of Khimki Denis Glushakov: “It’s sad. I was shocked when I found out about this. I still can’t believe that such a bright and cheerful person passed away. We called a month ago and said. It’s hard to say something. He was a real friend. He appreciated and respected everyone, regardless of age. He was very helpful. “
“Gamula didn’t play anyone out of himself. I can say that he was also good as a footballer. I will remember his smiling face, a bit like the great actor Leonov. Gamula is football Leonov , ” Alexander Mostovoy told the Championship .
