The organizer of the charity auction was the “With My Own Eyes” foundation of the goalkeeper of the Moscow team Artyom Rebrov. The goalkeeper wrote about the launch of the auction on his Instagram page.
“Yesterday Sanya (Kokorin - ed.) Scored his first goal for Spartak, on which I would like to congratulate him once again. for which many thanks to him! So, our today's lot: Kokorin's playing shirt from the victorious match", - wrote Rebrov.
The starting price of the lot was 10 thousand rubles, but in a few hours the price of a T-shirt increased 20 times. Rebrov added that these funds will go to charity.
In the first productive match for Spartak Kokorin played last Saturday. The team played away with Khimki. The outcome of the match was 3: 2 in favor of the capital team. In the standings of the Russian Premier League, Spartak is now in first position along with St. Petersburg “Zenith”. Both teams have 24 points.
Kokorin has been playing for Spartak since this season. Before that he played for Sochi. The striker missed the first matches of the Russian championship this year due to injury. Previously, the footballer was convicted of a gun fight in October 2018. Kokorin with his brother, as well as another footballer Pavel Mamaev, attacked the official and beat the driver of Channel One. The attacker was given 1.5 years. He was released on parole last September. The footballer tried to challenge his sentence in the Moscow City Court, but the court found it fair.
