Sergey Semak: “We got a difficult draw, it will be especially tough away”
We got a difficult draw, although they are having a bad time in the Turkish league, it will be especially tough away. They have some very good players in their squad and so we are waiting for two very difficult matches. 

Zenit and Russian football have a lot of things in common with Fenerbahce - Neto, Giuliano, Skrtel and Neustedter have all played there

Yes. There are a few and we have a lot of friends there. 

Before the draw, would you have wanted to play them? 

I think Fenerbahce was not on the list of the teams we wanted. They are not a side we wanted to play against.

Mircea Lucescu is currently working in Turkey. Will look for advice from him? 

I think yes, we will contact him and have a talk. I'm always happy to hear from Mircea and I look forward to a chat with him whenever possible.
