Agent: 'Hulk has ruined Zenit's game'
An agent has launched a stinging attack on Brazil striker Hulk, claiming he has ruined Zenit St Petersburg's game.
Football agent, Vladimir Abramov, believes that the arrival of Hulk and Axel Witsel have made Zenit a worse team than before after their poor start to the season.
Abramov told RT: "There's too much talk about money. We all believed that Zenit would become stronger after buying Hulk and Witsel.
"They are really good players, but Hulk gets the ball and just rushes forward while Witsel tries to do something on his own.
"It has to be admitted that with their arrival, Zenit's game has fallen apart. They aren't a united team anymore."
Abramov lamented the destruction of Zenit's playing style: "What's happening now is just unbelievable.
"Zenit used to be a speedy attacking team, tearing rivals apart, but they have turned into slow walkers. It's even stranger that Zenit struggle against not the strongest teams."
