Lokomotiv Denies Sale




MOSCOW -- Lokomotiv Moscow head coach Yury Syomin has denied rumors in Russian media that the premier division team plans to sell its best players.


"We're not selling our team with the European season just around the corner," Syomin said Tuesday.


Lokomotiv, which reached the semifinals of the Cup Winners Cup in each of the last two seasons, begins its European campaign next week in the UEFA Cup qualifying round.


Reports in the Russian press have said that Lokomotiv, in dire need of cash, tried to unload several of their top players to a number of European clubs.
