Zenit Kazan are staying empty handed when we talk about the main trophies – Russian League and Champions League.


The fans of the team from Kazan didn’t get used to it and this is an unpleasant situation for them since their team was dominating in the domestic league and Champions League since 2014!

The player/coach Alexey Verbov has tried to explain what happened with the team in the previous weeks:

Both Kuzbass and Lube are good teams that deserve the best epithets. However, in the last three weeks, we fell apart. We need to do a deep analysis to find out why we played in that way. We need to look at each other – the players, the coaching staff. We have to take responsibility. Probably we all need some kind of restart, to change the attitude toward the game. There were moments when we won matches or even titles but we were not particularly happy. It became a habit, it became an everyday job. Reaching the finals is no longer considered an achievement. In the new season, you need to create a team that will enjoy any victories. Probably we played the best game against Perugia. Wilfredo Leon gave us a huge motivation. We also played well against Fakel a team that beat us during the season. For some reason, it was not possible to keep up with this level. We, the whole Zenit Kazan team, need to unite now to get over this situation,“ says Aleksey Verbov.

I really like this kind of questioning and Im pretty sure that it is part of the 'reason why' :)

knowing that, the issue is : how to recover that envy ?... And maybe the solution has begun to be drawn by losing these 2 (3) main titles ! I mean the new goal isn't keeping a title anymore but to conquer it.

They just got tired of each other, they lost motivation. Leon's departure was the 1st step in rebuilding the team, now Anderson is leaving as well. They need to find their greatness and become hungry again

This whole debate is silly and pointless. When there is ONLY ONE title and there are 4 very powerful teams, and each of them 'deserves' to win that title, OLY ONE will win it! And the other 3 teams will lose no matter how huge they are. This is the nature of the competition. You cannot win forever.
