Kolotovkin: Hulk can score more goals
Former Russian defender and pundit Sergei Kolotovkin has backed Brazil star Hulk to score more goals at Zenit St Petersburg despite his poor form.
Hulk is yet to hit the headlines after his big money move from FC Porto in the summer, scoring just one goal in the league so far this season.
Kolotovkin told reporters: "Hulk needs time to adjust to life in a new country. He looked great in their last match. I do not know how much Zenit paid for him but I can say he is a great player.
"This person can change the fate of a match as he has a great left foot and a good eye for goal."
The former CSKA Moscow defender's comments come as Zenit lie in second place after their 1-0 win over Kuban Krasnodar, five points behind leaders Anzhi Makhachkala who are so far unbeaten this season.
Hulk made the move to Zenit for a fee of €60m despite interest from Chelsea and fans will be hoping that he can recapture his form for the Russian side.
