Striker “Zenith” Artem Dzyuba commented on the situation around the dispute with sports commentator Konstantin Genich and criticized his behavior.
The journalist admitted that he had previously argued with the striker about the number of goals scored by the blue-white-blue player Ivan Sergeyev. According to the terms of the bet, Genich won because the former striker of the club Krylya Sovetov said that he will score at least eight goals, and Dziuba believed that his teammate will score only seven goals this season.
In the event of the defeat of the dispute, Dzyuba had to wear a T-shirt with the phrase “Spartak, ban Genich”, which refers to the recent situation between the journalist and the Moscow team.
In the match against Lokomotiv, Sergeyev scored the eighth goal of the season, but Dziuba did not fulfill the terms of the contract with Genich, despite the defeat at the bet.
“We did not argue about anything. Konstantin Genich, like the yellow press. We talked privately. He developed such a cosmic story … I think it’s a shame. How does Genich behave … Fu. Spartak banned him. And now I banned it, ”said Dziuba , on the air of Match Premier TV channel.
The match between Zenit and Lokomotiv ended 3:1 in favor of the Petersburgers. Thanks to this victory, the team of Sergei Semak became the early champion of Russia in football.
