Attack Zenith Sebastian Driussi noted that he could leave the club this summer, but eventually decided to stay. The Argentine also told why he chose precisely St. Petersburg people when moving to Russia, and not "Spartacus" .

- I was interested in one club, I discussed the future with the club president. I thought about this offer to the last, but decided to stay at Zenit, because I felt that I should help the club win the trophies that he deserved. I want to stay in St. Petersburg, lead Zenit to victories, and then calmly think about the next steps. A year ago, before me really lay two contracts, from "Spartacus" and "Zenith". And I chose Zenit because of the size of the big club, the unique stadium, what kind of fans it has, and because Paredes was already here. I knew him from childhood, and it was a big dream to one day play together for one team from a strong championship. I want to continue to play next to him. So, if he suddenly decides to leave, I will try to persuade him to stay, said Driussi.

Driussi this season, held five matches in the Russian Championship, in which he scored two goals and made one assists.
