Carlsen-manager om VM i Saudi-Arabia: – Planen er at han skal spille
Amerikanske Hikaru Nakamura (29) går voldsomt ut mot at lynsjakk-VM skal arrangeres i Saudi-Arabia. Verdensener Magnus Carlsen (26) planlegger uansett å delta.
“As I know there is no sports boycott against Saudi Arabia. Chess is global sport and is played all over the world. There have been tournaments in other countries where there have also been various issues. For now, this has not been something Magnus and I have talked about,” he added.
