The best signing in the history of Zenit – Another player
Perhaps you do not fully agree with our choice and consider the loan of another player as the best in the history of Zenit. So vote for this option. Candidates: more than enough! Martin Skrtel, Roman Shirokov, Viktor Fayzulin, Ivica Krizanac, Radek Shirl, Javi Garcia, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Claudinho, Wendel, Sergei Semak… For example, Skrtel was bought from Trenchin for only €300,000, and was sold for three and a half years later to Liverpool for €10 million. Shirokov made a full transfer to Zenit from Khimki as a free agent. He won the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, two league titles, the Russian Cup and two domestic Super Cups. Semak came in handy for Zenit as a player, but the most important thing for the club is that the former captain of the Russian team had a strong connection with Saint Petersburg, which years later led him to the blue and white bench as a starter. coach.
