Russian coach Eteri Tutberidze in Instagram reacted to the return of the figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva to the group and received a reproach from netizens.
Tutberidze posted a photo with the figure skater, as well as with the choreographer Daniil Gleikhengauz and the group’s coach Sergei Dudakov. “Without loud promises. We just work, ”she signed the post, adding hashtags“ it happens ”and“ welcome back ”.
In the comments, some of the fans were unhappy with what happened. In particular, some users felt that Medvedeva’s return would negatively affect Alina Zagitova’s position in the group. “I hope that Tutberidze will no longer see the percentage of Alina’s fees,” “Heart with Alina,” “The main thing is that Yevgenia’s pulling out from the bottom of the well does not affect other girls,” they wrote.
Earlier, on September 16, it became known about the decision of 20-year-old Medvedeva to return to the Tutberidze group. Details of the possible transition are still unknown. The skater commented on the transition, saying that their relationship with the coach is fine.
Medvedeva left Tutberidze for Canadian specialist Brian Orser in the summer of 2018 after losing to Zagitova in the individual tournament of the Olympics in Pyeongchang. In addition to the silver medal of the 2018 Games, under the leadership of Tutberidze, Medvedeva won two World Championships, European Championships and the Grand Prix final.
