Such headlines appearing in a business paper is a good symbol of my entire campaign! “Magnus Carlsen is cheering for Garry Kasparov”!

Top Norwegian business newspaper, DN, with an interview with Norwegian world champion Magnus Carlsen on the FIDE election. Headline: “Get rid of unpopular leader to bring more money.” Some quotes:

“Carlsen wants to get rid of current chess president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov to bring more sponsors to the sport.”

‘That is the main reason why I’m on Kasparov’s side,’ Carlsen says to DN”[Norwegian Business Daily]
