According to the latest announcement from the Legion Dynamo Makhachkala club, this team has succeeded in convincing Khabib to switch to professional football. This team posted on social networks a photo of president Shamil Lakhiyalov shaking hands with a fighter dubbed “Dagestan Eagle” on the negotiating table with a message.

“Great battles await us, so the Legion needs brave warriors. We are ready to fight with the top Russian teams when we have Khabib Nurmagomedov in the squad.”

Currently, this team is playing in the Third Division of Russia and will soon play in the Russian Cup (Russian Cup). Legion Dynamo is in the same group as Ufa, who plays in the Russian Premier League, and Alania Vladikavkaz, who plays in the 6th tier of Russia.

As revealed by Shamil Lakhiyalov, Khabib decided to play professional football not for money but for a higher purpose. “Khabib has no shortage of money, he just wants to play football for his passion. Khabib wants to spark a passion for football in the Dagestan community.”

Before that, Khabib had repeatedly shown his football skills. Legion Dynamo once invited this fighter, but at that time, Khabib did not want to retire from martial arts.

At the age of 32, “Dagestan Eagle” is difficult to create a surprise on the pitch, but the fact that this player plays on the field also creates great excitement for the fans.
