- I am very happy that I made the move to SKA. As soon as Dynamo sorted out their issues, I received the offer from Saint Petersburg. It all happened rather quickly. I haven't had time to look around Saint Petersburg yet, I have only been in the hotel and at training. My physical condition is good, I'm ready to start training!
- My health is fine, I've already started training with the team. During the summer, I flew to Spain with my girlfriend before flying here to prepare for the season in Saint Petersburg. I haven't spoken to Oleg Znarok yet, but we'll have time to talk.
