Yury Zhevnov: “We all want to win the league early”

The blue-white-sky blue goalkeeper shared his expectations about the match with CSKA at Zenit’s practice facility in Udelny Park.

– I think it’s going to be a very tough game, but also very interesting, – says Yury Zhevnov. – The whole country is going to watch the match. All of us, the players and the fans, want to win the league as soon as possible. To beat CSKA on Wednesday, to earn ourselves first place in the league, and to beat our primary opponent – that’s what we want! We all want to win the league early.

– The stadium is sold out.

– Thankfully, that's nothing new for Zenit. Our fans are loyal to us, and they’re not afraid of the weather. With God’s help we’ll celebrate the championship at Petrovsky Stadium. It’s especially nice to become the champions in the derby between the two capitals, in a match against our main rival.
