Yuri Zhirkov from Dynamo Moscow of Russia

Transfer from one club to another is the life of professional footballers. Some of them may not pay as per the expectations of the supporters and then plays extremely well for the opponent when he joins the other club. Almost the same thing happened with Yuri Zhirkov who was a former defender of Chelsea some years ago. He made 49 appearances for the Famous club but couldn’t meet the expectations of the supporters.

He scored once and let others score on 11 occasions. As he was released by Chelsea, his career started moving around his homeland Russia. Clubs like Anzhi Makhachkala, Dinamo Moscow gave him the honor to represent their teams. Since 2016 he has been part of Zenit St. Petersburg. He represented his country in the World Cups of 2014 and 2018. He helped Russia to qualify for the 2008 UEFA EURO cup Semi-finals. He also won the FUTBOL’s Russian Footballer of the year. In front of the home crowd, his performance was actually astonishing as Russia was the host of the 2018 World Cup.

Dynamo Moscow is the team on which there were so many expectations but their performance became average through the first quarter of the Russian Premier League. They are about to host FC Krasnodar on their home ground VTB Arena as per the prefixed fixture of the Russian Premier League. Dynamo Moscow is just one point away to replace their next opponent from their 7th place in the league table. Since Dynamo Moscow lost to Khimki in the previous match by 1 goal to nil, they have gone down to the lower portion of the table. Another thing that can be a cause of headache is in head to head comparison with the next challenger, Dynamo Moscow is trailing a bit as they only won 6 times out of 16 encounters.
