Sirokovs can't wait to be back on ice

As earlier was informed, Dinamo Rigas' forward and ex-captain Aleksejs Sirokovs was left home for the teams three away games in Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk and Ufa. It was rumored, that Sirokovs has a conflict with head coach Shupler.

In an interview (available only in Latvian or Russian) for Dinamos’ official homepage Aleksejs says, he was having health problems, so it was necessarily to stay in Riga for some medical check-ups. Sirokovs heart was examined, a magnetic resonance on the head and neck was taken, and also Aleksejs will need to visit a neurologist. Possible, the problems are caused due to injuries gotten in the past.

Sirokovs says he feels fine both physically and morally and is ready to play at any time, but still it is necessarily to wait for the check-up results, only then the decision about the term of Aleksejs’ coming back on the ice will be made.

Sirokovs also pointed out that it was possible to win Metallurg Magnitogrosk, that playing at Traktor's Chelyabinsk is very hard and that Ufa’s Salavat Yulaev does not need commentaries. Nonetheless, in KHL every team can win their opponents.
