Football: Summer Transfer Highlights
June 30, 2013 16:55

1.   The Prodigal Son

Zenit get Andrey Arshavin, 32, back from Arsenal, but do they really need him? Several weeks ago Zenit’s coach Luciano Spalletti spoke quite sarcastic about his return. Arsenal’s Wenger was dissatisfied with his lackluster performance and physical form while Arshavin complained it was such a torture to sit on the bench.

2.   Guus Hiddink Stays

Guus Hiddink has extended his contract with Anzhi after a slightly disappointing season and the defeat in the finals of the Russian Cup. He’s got one more year to prove his world-class competence and has already secured some major reinforcements for the side from the south of Russia.

3.   Anzhi Snatches Kokorin

Dynamo’s forward has been bought for €20 million to join the bronze medalists from Dagestan’s capital Makhachala. Alexander Kokorin is viewed as one of the rising stars and is regularly on the list for international games.

4.   No Sure They Gonna Miss Him

Anzhi also grabbed Zenit’s emotional midfielder who was earlier the cause of internal squabbles within Russia’s silver medalist. Igor Denisov, 29, must have been happy to leave after falling out with the team's coach and the management over pay. Zenit got €15 million.

5.   Old Guard Back

Former Zenit captain, Ukrainian Anatoly Timoshchuk returns to St. Petersburg from to FC Bayern to help the side in the Champions League. The 34-year old midfielder commented on the news saying it’s his home club and would possibly be his last one.
