There were many candidates for Pinyaev. Zenit, Spartak and several other clubs showed interest in the 18-year-old striker. It was this season that Sergei began to give bright matches at the adult level, in a short time he came to the forefront in the “Wings” and earned a call to the national team. By the way, having appeared on the field in a friendly match with Tajikistan in November, Pinyaev became the youngest debutant in the history of the national team.
– “Wings of the Soviets” is a club that will always be in my heart. Many important things happened in my life here. I want to thank everyone who supported me and cared. It was in Samara that I began to perform at a high level, I received an invitation to the national team. Thank you for everything, – said Pinyaev.
