St Petersburg striker "Zenith" Artyom Dziuba commented on the words of German captain "Leipzig" Willy Orban, who summoned Russia's third brother from former Ukrainian boxer Vitaliy and Vladimir Klitschko.
"He did not know that he called me brother Klitschko. I don't even know, on the one hand, it might be a compliment, on the other hand, after Vitalik, maybe he wants to insult me, "Dziuba told Zenit's press service.
He also noted that Orban was an important player in the Leipzig system and his absence in the blue-white-blue game was a loss for the German team.
The fourth round of the Champions League group stage match "Zenit" – "Leipzig" will be held on November 5 in St. Petersburg. The start is at 8:55 p.m.
Previously it was reported that Zenit goalkeeper Andrei Lunev would not play in a Champions League match with Leipzig.
