In an interview for 1news.az, Teimour Radjabov suggests a new format for next year's European Club Cup:

If the European Chess Union wants to make the tournament more interesting, it is necessary that the top ten teams play each other in a round robin tournament. It will be more objective, since the current format does not have enough rounds and the strength of opponents is not the same. Seven rounds may not reflect the real balance of forces in a particular tournament.

In the interview it is also mentioned that Radjabov, who climbed to the 5th spot in the live ratings this week, will marry on October 7th - this was previously reported by Apasport.az.
