Zenit : Russian clubs have finally begun to play football. Having gone to the first winter training camp, the teams hold friendly matches in which the head coaches can evaluate how many extra pounds their wards brought back from the holidays. And at the same time check the first potential newcomers. The start of the winter registration period is just around the corner – clubs will be able to add new names to applications from January 26.
The leader of the Zenit Championship on January 19, at the training camp in Dubai, Zenit met with the representative of the Emirates First Division of the United Arab Emirates.

Artyom Dzyuba came out in the starting lineup and played the first half.
The head coach of Zenit Sergey Semak spoke about the further fate of the brightest RPL football player in an interview with the Championship .
“Today, Artyom has a valid contract. There is a point at which it is automatically extended. Now you need to play and prove yourself. In the first part of the season, he came out and was useful. Will do it further – good. If the club understands that the player is helping and wants to stay at Zenit, then why not sign a new contract?
Then the question is in Artyom himself – is he satisfied with the fact that no one guarantees him a place in the line-up? And already you need to understand the opinion of the player. In any case, today he has a valid contract, and he did not tell me about his desire to leave ,” Semak is quoted by “Championship”.
Another no less important player for the team, striker Serdar Azmun has not yet finally decided on his future.

He stood up for his employee and the owner of the team.
“Now we don’t have a coach inside the school who could lead a team with quite famous football players. There is no such coach who could support our style. Everyone laughs at it, but for us style is the most important thing. We want to play the football that Krasnodar has always played. We carefully looked at the Russian coaches that are on the market, but we saw that none of the free Russian coaches would give us this style , ”Sergey Galitsky said on the air of the Match Premier TV channel.
