Boyarsky about Zenit in the Champions League: “We can play inside the country, but in Europe it’s not for us”

Petersburgers will again have to try their hand at the main club tournament in Europe.

Honored Artist of Russia and Zenit fan Mikhail Boyarsky reacted to the fact that Zenit will be in the third pot in the Champions League group stage draw. The Petersburgers got into the third basket after Chelsea beat Man City in the Champions League final (1-0).

“Everything is clear, goodbye! You can pack your bags! After the Champions League final, I have no hope that our football will come a little closer to European football.

I will of course support the team. I will root for Semak and for everyone. But we are not playing football. Zenit was not lucky in this regard, of course. Zenit are good, talented guys. We are able to win in domestic football, 3 championships in a row, and this will continue. We can play domestically, but in Europe it is not for us. I don’t even know what to do about it. Maybe send people to study coaching in Europe. Tuchel led Chelsea to the Champions League in half the season. How is this even possible? What did he tell them? We should at least listen to this. This is something beyond “, – said Boyarsky.


Recall that in the last Champions League draw, Zenit took the last place in the group with Borussia Dortmund, Lazio and Club Brugge.
