"It had nothing to do with my decision to leave the board of directors," Slava Bykov emphasizes when asked if the difficult contract negotiations of Andrei did play a part. "However, I was surprised by the way this matter was handled. This is not the way to treat people."

Bykov also states that this was not a matter of the board of directors and that he did not talk to anyone to try to influence the club's decision, but:

«I must admit, however, that it has weighed on my morale»

Moreover, Slava Bykov does not refrain from criticizing team manager and head coach Christian Dubé: "If a player has qualities and a strong character, it's up to you [as a coach] to find a way to handle it well. If it leads to conflict, then in my opinion you are not a good leader."
