“Aris” does not want to see Dziuba and Dzhikiya in the team 15:46

Aris head coach Alexei Shpilevsky explained why the team did not want to sign contracts with Russian football players Artem Dzyuba and Georgy Dzhikiya. His words guide the way “Sports Express”.

“We do not need reinforcements for these positions. And the development vector of the club is aimed at young players, helping them grow and move to another league. It will be difficult to develop something with Dzhikia and Dzyuba. I have great respect for these two players. In general, we are watching the Russian market,” said Shpilevsky .

35-year-old Dzyuba played in 26 matches in all competitions in the 2023/24 season, scoring 4 goals and making 4 assists. At the end of the season, Lokomotiv ranked fourth in the Russian Premier League (RPL) by collecting 53 points. After the end of the season, the striker left the club.

Dzhikia has been playing for Spartak since 2017. With the club he won the championship and the Russian Cup. The club officially announced his departure on 18 May. The next day, Dzhikia led the team onto the field with his captain’s armband and played 67 minutes with Rubin in the 29th round match of the Russian Premier League. At the end of the season the team finished fifth in the RPL.

Previously head of FTR Shamil Tarpishchev named Jikia leaving Spartak was a mistake.
