"Anji" FC disowns detained Makha Idrisov

Makha Idrisov, a search at whose home discovered an arsenal of weapons, never worked for the "Anji" FC. That was a reaction of the "Anji" FC's administration to a message from the Dagestani Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) reporting that Makha Idrisov, who boasted of his friendship with Ramzan Kadyrov, was the vice president of the "Anji" FC.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 19, a source from the Dagestani MIA reported about the detention of Makha Idrisov and called him a friend of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov. The RBC reported with reference to the press service of the Dagestani MIA that Makha Idrisov, the former vice president of the Makhachkala "Anji" FC, was detained, and law enforcers found a lot of weapons during the search at his home.

The Makha Idrisov's page on Instagram contains a number of photos, suggesting that he is on friendly terms with Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.

The "Anji" FC reported that Makha Idrisov had never worked for them, the TASS reports.
