"How did I get acquainted with German Tkachenko? He was introduced to me by Samvel Babayan, who was the head coach of our national team. I met with Tkachenko on match day. However, he didn't tell that we would meet with Mourinho, but he said there would be a surprise.
I didn't believe it before, we greeted and talked together. He was working as commentator at the Asian Cup 2019 in UAE. Tkachenko explained to Jose that I played there and scored goals. And, Mourinho said he had known about it" Shomurodov said.
