Sergei Kiryakov: “Spartak” wants to impose a fight on “Zenith”, but all the time the opposite turns out

– It is clear that there are no tournament tasks. It is simply about two rivals of this type, between whom any match is always fundamental. To this can be added the enthusiasm of the fans, who do not treat each other very well. So if both teams prepare seriously, the match will be interesting. How Zenit will involve all its players will also be important. Well, do you want to show the home team that the team is capable of a lot by beating the defending champion?

– Spartak made sure. And what would it matter if the team at the table was eliminated?

– Then the situation would be different: Zenit would do everything possible to send the rojiblancos to the FNL (laughs). But now the situation is different. The team is not having the most successful season, but it can save it if it wins the Russian Cup. Probably, all forces will be thrown against him. There, too, the opponent will be serious. The rival will be a team that for a long time could impose a fight on Zenit for the championship.

– What do you think Spartak will focus on: Zenit or the Cup final?

– I think you should not guess about coffee grounds. We don’t know how it will be in reality. Everything will be visible just one hour before the match, when the protocols with the lineups will be in front of us. Then it will be possible to determine the seriousness with which both approach this match. It is clear that the rojiblancos have the final in mind, but the sports component will also be present here. Let’s hope that the team will present all the strongest players.

– How did you perceive the results of the semifinals of the Russian Cup?

“Nothing surprising happened. There were representatives from different leagues. The juniors looked good, but nothing more. The class also influenced the level of the players. Alania brought more surprises, making the Dynamo nervous. At Spartak, everything was clear: a well-deserved victory.

Let’s go back to the next fight. How important will Artyom Dzyuba’s participation be in the match?

– I think that any duel with Spartak is important for him. The guy is ambitious. Complaints sit on him for how he was treated at Spartak. And if the coaching staff trusts him, I’m sure he’ll do everything to win his former team back.

– Especially considering the fact that everything is happening now in the context of his dissatisfaction with the amount of time he spends in the field…

– It has always been like that, and the players say they are treated badly. Dziuba is no exception. But in his interviews, when the topic of Spartak is brought up, he feels that he is offended, and in the match against his former club he will do everything to win.

– What do you think, should Dziuba stay for next season?

“I didn’t follow what was going on with them enough. Probably, the last word will have the leadership and the coaching staff. I just don’t know his position.

– Sergei Semak promised that he would play with the main team against Spartak. Is this a fundamental position?

– I think, since this was announced, then yes. After all, the task is to win, and why not do it again? I think that in the remaining games for Zenit that is a fundamental issue.

– Is this due to the fact that Spartak refused to organize a championship racer?

– Maybe. Again, a confrontation between the two most famous Russian clubs takes place. It’s great for fans and those who want to watch attacking football to see a good selection of players. The team is of a very good level and in any case can show its best qualities. But on the condition that there is a strong team.

– Will this match be life and death, if you remember what kind of defeat the St. Petersburg team inflicted on their opponent in the first round?

– I think each game has its own story. Perhaps this will be remembered before the meeting itself. In this sense, rivals like to make fun of each other. It is possible that Zenit will become the initiator to heat up this whole situation. Well, for the ‘rojiblancos’ any victory can be called revenge.

– What impression does the current Spartak give?

– When there is no stability, then many questions arise. Spartak stands out. Everything is constantly in view and heated. Perhaps in that emotional component the team surpasses Zenit. After all, it is constantly said that the team will finally impose a fight on Zenit, but we see the opposite.
