London, Feb.17 (ANI): Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, 27, has said that he does not like British food or women.
Since arriving at White Hart Lane in a 14 million pound switch from Spartak Moscow last August, Roman has whined about being starved of decent food.
"I don't like English dishes. At the Spurs training ground, the food is modest. ll they have there is a simple canteen. At the Spartak training camp, near Moscow, the choice and quality is better. But since my wife Larisa joined me in London, it's not a problem for me any more," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"She is a good cook and now I eat at home. I'm back to my favourite borsch and vareniki - dumplings stuffed with cottage cheese - and from this point of view I now feel as if I never moved countries," he added.
Asked which country had the better-looking women, he said: "Russia, of course - there can't be any comparison." (ANI)
