Zenit St Petersburg's Danny looking forward to playing alongside Hulk
Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Danny is looking forward to returning from injury so that he can link up with summer signing Hulk.
The Portuguese international has been out of action since February after suffering a number of injuries.
Therefore, Danny is yet to play alongside the Seleção forward, who was signed for €50 million (£39.6 million) from Porto, but he hopes to make a swift return and link-up soon.
The 29-year-old said: "Individually, he is a very strong player and can beat almost any defender one-on-one and create scoring chances single-handedly.
"It is very interesting to play with such a creative partner and I hope after my complete recovery our attacking partnership will bring Zenit a lot of benefits and wins."
Zenit teammate Igor Denisov recently complained about Hulk’s extravagant wages in the media, stating that they are too high in comparison with long-term servants of the club.
However, Danny believes the recent problems at the Russian club will be resolved soon.
He added: "Denisov is an excellent player and one of our team's charismatic leaders, who plays an important role at the club.
"I believe he will be able to settle his disagreement with the chiefs pretty soon and return to the first squad."
Hulk has scored just one goal in five league appearances for Zenit so far, as the club sit third in the Russian Premier League.
