Evgeny Plushenko announced to the public that the girl’s still dangerous to go out on the big stage. Health of the girl has not yet recovered, so she will have to refrain from speaking. But the athlete says Sotnikova will be back on stage after the complete treatment.

But colleagues skater think differently. So Tatiana Tarasova said that, after breaking a bone in the leg and severe trauma to the ankle, the girl will no longer speak. Vice-President of the International skating Union Alexander Likiernik confirmed the fears of colleagues. He said that Sotnikova will be very difficult going back to the same level of skill.

Evgeni Plushenko was outraged by such statements, after all, believes that it is impossible to criticize the girl in this situation. Most of all she needs now is support. Plushenko believes that it was the support of his coach at the right moments helped him to win Olympic medals. “I’m 34, went through 15 surgeries, my coach believed in me when no one didn’t believe in me and all it was funny, but we with Alexey Nikolaevich Mishin won four Olympic medals in the last four Olympiads for Russia, for our great sporting nation!”

Coach Sotnikovoy also decided to choose a support position that the girl was able to get back on the ice. “And now let not the easiest period in your life and many of my colleagues, who recently applauded you and praise you, now give very strange comments. You’re a great athlete! Let me remind you all! The first in the history of Russian women’s figure skating-Olympic champion!”

The athlete also precritical their colleagues who give pessimistic forecasts. “Instead of supporting a girl with a severe ankle injury, which is not easy, you pounced on her! Adelinka, I know how hard it is, he went through it. I am ashamed of my colleagues, was a shame! Fellow trainers, she is a member of the national team of the Russian team, not the enemy!” — wrote an appeal to his ward and colleagues Plushenko.

But not one coach of a skater vehemently supported the girl, and her fans came to the defense of a skater. “All your fans believe in your return, sometimes we have great desire, but to deal with health and with the strongest contenders outside of human capabilities. Selecive injury and go on,” said Plushenko.

She began to train under the supervision of Evgeni Plushenko in April. When she conquered the ice of the Olympic games in Sochi, was under the tutelage of Elena Buyanova.
