Claudio Marchisio: "I wanted to find a club that shares my values"

The first interview with our new Italian midfielder.
Claudio Marchisio: "I wanted to find a club that shares my values"
— I had no doubt about signing for Zenit. I like the club, I like the ambition. After leaving Juventus, I promised that I would not sign for any other Italian team, but I still wanted to find a place that shares my values. When I saw yesterday’s match [against Spartak] I was struck by the stadium, and the way the fans supported Zenit.

Before that, I talked to Domenico Criscito, and asked him to recommend a good restaurant! In fact, Mimmo confirmed that Zenit is a special club with amazing fans. At the end of the week, I will come to St. Petersburg to see everything with my own eyes.
