Ex-striker of Milan Inter, Alvaro Recoba shared his memories of his meetings with Moscow Spartak in 1998, praising him the talent of one of the team leaders Oleg Romantsev Egor Titov. – We paid a lot of attention to how to limit the ninth issue of Spartak in getting the ball, recoba told Izvestia. – Speak his name is Yegor Titov? Yes, that's right. Titov – was an incredibly talented player, could pass the opponent’s defense in one pass, possessed incredible technique. – You speak so well of him, but he never tried his hand in a strong foreign championship. – By his talent Titov could easily play at Inter or any top club in Europe. There were very few playmakers of this level. I don’t know why he didn’t manage to leave, but Yegor should have received such offers. – After the end of his career, he said that he was close to moving to Bavaria … – I was not at all surprised at this. Spring 1998 of the year, Inter twice beat Spartak in the semifinals of the UEFA Cup – 2: 1 in Milan, and 2: 1 in Moscow. In autumn, the rivals met again in the group stage of the Champions League. The Milanese again won 2: 1 at home on October 21, and on November 4, the match at Luzhniki ended in a draw 1: 1.
