We talked about Dzyuba with the Spartak legend, the former general manager of the rojiblancos Sergei Shavlo.
– Did Lokomotiv do the right thing by signing Dziuba?
– Someone says that at 34 there is nothing to expect from a footballer, but we know that even at 36-37 some people play at a high level.
Dziuba is a free kick player, it is very difficult for the opponent’s defenders to fight him. He only needs a moment and a half to score.
In the first cup match with Spartak, Dzyuba was the most active and dangerous Lokomotiv. In one episode, he didn’t have enough inches to score. After his header, the ball hit the post.
Then there was another dangerous moment when Artem lobbed the ball over Maksimenko, who came out to meet him. A little imprecise: the ball flew over the crossbar.
Answering your question, Lokomotiv did everything right. The team is in a difficult position, in such a situation we need experienced players who can deliver results.
