Chelsea wing-back Yury Zhrikov is bristling over comments made by Spartak Moscow owner Leonid Fedun.

Zhirkov scored a spectacular volley in their 2-0 win over Spartak two weeks ago.

The goal led Fedun to quip: "Zhirkov shoots like this once every five years. Unfortunately, it happened in our match."

Zhirkov, who played for Spartak's bitter Moscow rivals CSKA for five years before joining Chelsea, said he wanted to prove Fedun wrong.

"I've read these comments by Mr Fedun and want to prove him that he really underestimates me," he told Sport-Express.
