Loko keeper Eldin Jakupovic took the decision to stay in Lokomotiv at least up to end of this season.
Ivan Pelizzoli who stayed off the field when the season started soon proved to the coaching staff he deserved a place in the goal and thus replaced Eldin Jakupovic as Loko`s first choice keeper.
Jakupovic took the coaching staff`s decision close to heart and expressed his desire to leave the team.
However, Loko manager Anatoly Byshovets talked the keeper out of the hasty decision.
"I spoke to Byshovets and he managed to convince me that it was not time for hasty decisions," said Jakupovic to Sport Express.
