KAZAN, September 17, Adela Ziatdinova. Midfielder of St. Petersburg Zenit “Aleksey Sutormin admitted to reporters that Rubin Kazan and CSKA Moscow were interested in his transfer, but negotiations with both clubs failed.
On Sunday in Kazan, Zenit beat Rubin (3:0) in the match of the eighth round of the Russian Championship. The goals were scored by Wilson Isidore (8th minute), Mateo Cassierra (56) and Claudinho (59).
“I wouldn’t say it was too easy. So we scored well at the beginning of the match, probably, then we looked a little passive, it’s good that we scored at the beginning of the second half, and then it became easier for us. Direct negotiations with I didn't have Ruby, but I was interested, and it all stopped there. As for CSKA, negotiations with them did not end in success. That's why I continue to work here, at Zenit. Regarding the move to CSKA with Vladimir “I haven’t spoken to Fedotov. But we keep in touch, I congratulate him on his victories, on the holidays, we have a good relationship, and if there are any questions, I can call,” Sutormin said.

“Zenit has always been in the championship race. Now we need to find strength, go to the place where we must be. We are trying to do this as soon as possible. Of course, I am motivated by the opportunity to get into the Russian national team, but I need to spend more time on the field. If you solve this problem first, the call will come. First of all, we need to play here more and be worthy,” added the midfielder.
