“Bakaev lost the competition at Zenit. In the UAE he should become one of the team leaders” – Dmitry Radchenko

Midfielder Zelimkhan Bakayev lost the competition to Zenit St. Petersburg, but in the UAE team he should become one of the leaders, says the former blue-white-blue footballer Dmitry Radchenko.

On Tuesday, Zenit announced the transfer of Bakaev to the Emirati club Al-Wahda on loan until the end of the season without the right to buy.

— Bakaev did not succeed at Zenit. This happens when you change teams. New requirements from the technical staff, different partners, no one promises a place in the starting lineup. Bakaev had to win the competition. We know his qualities, everything was in his hands. But he was losing the competition, and without game practice, it’s very difficult to show up and fight for a spot in the lineup. That’s why he was sent to another club.

Will Bakayev return to Russia? This is a loan, so under the contract with Zenit he will have to return. The main thing is that he trains there. We know little about the UAE championship, but I think Bakaev should become one of the team leaders there. In terms of level, he is probably higher than the players who play there,” Radchenko told .

Bakaev became a Bleu-Blanc-Bleu player last summer. As a member of the team, he played 34 matches, scored three goals and made three assists, became champion of Russia and two-time winner of the country’s Super Cup. Previously, the 27-year-old midfielder played for Spartak Moscow and Arsenal Tula.
