“When I announced that I was leaving Dynamo for Zenit, Kokorin dissuaded, saying:“ I will not go to Zenit ”. At Zenit, I first entered the field, including in the Champions League. At that time, only Danny was playing on the left in my position. Later the club bought Shatov. It was from that moment that I stopped playing ", - quotes Solovyov" Championship ".

According to him, he asked to be leased, but Zenit did not let him go, as they told him that they were counting on him.
