Krasnodar midfielder Ilzat Akhmetov spoke about the transfer of former CSKA defender Mario Fernandez to Zenit.
“I was shocked. Knowing Mario, talking to him, teasing him… I was just so surprised! If we find out the truth, we will somehow change our opinion, but again, this is his business. He probably knows better what he should have done at one time or another,” Match TV quoted Akhmetov as saying.
On July 17, the St. Petersburg club announced the transfer of the 32-year-old ex-CSKA player. Fernandez signed a one-year contract with an option to extend for a season. The footballer played for the Russian national team from 2017 to 2021 and played in 33 matches, in which he scored five goals and gave three assists.
Earlier, CSKA published a photo of Akinfeev and Fernandez before the match with Zenit.
