Former player of the Russian national team Andrei Arshavin called the reasons for Zenit’s failure in the European arena. For the second year in a row, Zenit is the last in the group stage of the Champions League.
In the Champions League, injuries, covid stories were superimposed, Zenit was not always in full force. It was hard, Zenit played the most, flew the most. But this is all in pursuit. The team needs to show a different level of dedication, holding the ball, and in the RPL he is not forced to do this, and therefore problems arise in the Champions League “, – said Arshavin.
We add that Zenit went on a winter break, confidently leading the Russian championship.
