If that's the case, Semin needs to find a new agent. The guy I heard on the radio was pretty much exactly what you've described, and he should be speaking on his client's behalf.
If Semin is the player his agent spoke about, no thank you. I don't want that kind of attitude anywhere near my team, particularly where there are a lot of young players. If he's not, then his agent is putting him behind the 8 ball to start any negotiations.
