"I am very glad that it happened. I am glad to get back to the city. It's good to wear the Zenit shirt. I just want to play football," he told Zenit's official website.
"Of course, I want to return to the national team. I do not know whether being at Zenit helps this or not. I just want to play football. And I want to do it in my hometown."
