Portugal is backward, says Benfica's Karyaka

MOSCOW, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Unsettled Benfica winger Andrei Karyaka says he will consider moving back to Russia if he does not get regular first-team action.

In an interview with Russian daily Sovietsky Sport, Karyaka complained that Benfica coach Ronald Koeman was not giving him a chance.

'He (Koeman) prefers Brazilian players,' said Karyaka, 27, who joined the Portuguese champions from Krylya Sovietov Samara in June.

'We had a face-to-face meeting once and I asked him straight: 'Why haven't I played for two months?' He was telling me stories about the Brazilians, who need playing time in order to get Portuguese passports.'

The Russian international, who was born in Ukraine, also said life in Lisbon was tough for his family.

'Portugal is a backward country,' said Karyaka. 'I think Lisbon is about 20 years behind (Moscow).

'It's a big village. There's no place for children to play outside.'
