    Takahashi's current coach in Osaka, Utako Nagamitsu, accepted the skater's decision to work with Morozov. Nagamitsu will remain as primary coach, with Morozov working with them as an advisory coach.

    So much for Russian coaches not being able to work with foreign students.

    I guess Morozov is special and those restrictions don't apply to him.

    Or maybe the fact that he only consults Amodio and Morozov (who retain their primary coaches) means he can get round that.

    And yes, I think this does not bode well for Florent Amodio. In fact, I'm not sure who it does bode well for. Hanyu? Chan?

    Some quotes from a japanese article (http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/n...-968059.html):

    Takahashi have Morozov as one of his coaches as an adviser.
    Morozov approached him before this year's world championships.

    Takahashi said:
    I have only two years before the Sochi Olympics.
    I have hesitated over accepting his offer but I decided because I think he will offer me good advice for the Olympics.

    Morozov said:
    Daisuke was my favorite skater I have ever trained.
    I felt sorry about the way I split with Daisuke and I have many regrets.
    In the past he was one of the great skaters but he is now memorable.
    I am no match for him without my improvement.

    But it doesn't automatically mean he has to use Morosov for choreography right?

    His students typically get consistency and undeservedly high PCS so this might just be what he needs to beat Chan.

    I'm a huge huge fan of Takahashi and I'm really curious about how it will turn out to him. Maybe people are overreacting a bit. Morozov is known for bringing the best out of his students. He makes them feel more confident and eventually that shows on their skating and improves their overall results.
    I am aware that Morozov is not one of the most popular guys over here but he sure knows how to turn skaters into winners.
    Off course that Daisuke is already a winner but maybe Morozov will work things in order to highlight Daisuke's qualities even more.

    Takahashi said: I have hesitated over Morozov's offer, but I decided to put myself into a tough environment.
    Morozov said: He must be go down in the history of figure skating. I'd like to provide help to him with my full effort so that he will win the Olympic medal.

    I did not see this coming at all. I just really really hope he won't be doing Morozov choreography for his programs. Dai has been nothing but original since he started working with Camerlengo and other choreographers. Does this mean we won't see Dai do any of Kenji's choreography again? I wish the articles said something about choreo.

    Sigh, I think I'm just going to find a corner and now.

    Dai himself's decision(after all) and Morozov's drive for Dai OG and his role as advisor(just?) all look a little weird. lol

    Hmm, so, doesn't Morozov want Plush to win OGM?

    But then again, he already coached Arakawa to win OGM over Slutskaya so it's not a big deal for him it seems.
