Heydar Aliyev - 97!
Today marks 97 years since the birth of national leader of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev. Heydar Aliyev, who always worked for the welfare of our people during the USSR, paid special attention to the development of sports, as well as in all areas. At that time, it was Heydar Aliyev who prevented Neftchi, which was fighting in the Strong Group, from being sent to the First Group. At the same time, the national leader, who was regularly interested in Neftchi's situation, often met with team members. In the 80s and 90s, the increase in the number of Azerbaijani footballers in Neftchi was made possible by the care of a great politician. The construction of the training base for our team and the repair of the Republican stadium were carried out under his direct supervision.
The dear memory of Heydar Aliyev will always live in the hearts of millions!
