Zenit CEO Alexander Medvedev believes that the team’s leadership is beneficial for Russian football.

General Director of “Zenith” Alexander Medvedev told the “Championship” about the tasks for the coming years. On May 25, the St. Petersburg club celebrated his 98th birthday. The Zenit manager answered the questions at the opening of the exhibition for this very important date.

On paper the club is nearing an anniversary date

“It would be a sin to complain. Second star, five championships in a row. They showed that in our arithmetic twice five is ten (smiles). We come to the next stage in a good mood, where we have on the agenda the 10th Russian championship and, of course, the anniversary season of Zenit – the 100th anniversary of the club, for which we are already preparing.

The main thing is the sports part, but, as today’s exhibition shows, the use of all modern technologies, digitization methods to expand our audience both at the stadium and on the screens of not televisions, but, as they say now, devices. We want our audience to be diverse in age, so that it is modern, interesting, popular and fashionable for young people to go to football, get interested in football and watch the best episodes. There are a great many such episodes in our football, whatever skeptics and malicious critics may say.

About the goals of “Zenith” for a century.

“Our goal is always to win, both in anniversary years and non-anniversary years. I think Zenit is the obvious flagship of Russian football. This is good for our football, contrary to the opinion of some pseudo-experts who say that our football is degrading. It is in the fight against the leader, in the fight for the title with a strong rival that football can develop. Because you can change the champion every year, playing at random. When you have to fight against a strong, tactically and strategically sophisticated opponent, I think these are the prerequisites for football to move forward.

About tasks from the point of view of international integration of “Zenith”

“Unfortunately, we are not participants in European competitions. I won’t hide how disappointed we are. Needless to say what if, but both in terms of composition and level of play, I am sure that Zenit would have been very serious competition both in the last season of the Champions League and in the future.

We don’t run out of international matches. We played against Red Star, Fenerbahce, Sepahan. We will be waiting for our opponents at the Gazprom Arena and at the Smena Stadium, which the fans love so much. I hope to see good and interesting football soon.

In addition, our young people play in tournaments with foreign teams both in Russia and abroad.

Representative tournament in Türkiye, where the main clubs of Europe played. Now our boys went to Brazil. The Brazilians came to the Burchalkin tournament. The simple truth is that sport is about building bridges, not breaking them, and it will break the road. We are very proud of this and will continue to do so. We call on other clubs to build relationships with foreign teams, play friendly matches and tournaments. Also, there are places to play: we have beautiful stadiums, the legacy of the World Cup. I’m sure there will be partners. And so we will prepare for the return, which will inevitably happen.
