Byshovets believes Zakharian’s future in Spain depends on his character

Russian coach Anatoly Byshovets expressed the opinion that the future of the Real Sociedad midfielder Arsène Zakharian in Spain depends on its character.

On Wednesday, Real Sociedad drew at home against Austrian Salzburg (0:0) in the 5th round match of the Champions League. For the first time in the current tournament, Zakharyan entered the field in the starting lineup and played a full match.

— Arsen Zakharyan’s future in Spain largely depends on his character. Because it’s not easy to adapt to a new way of life and to the game of a team that has its own style. This is an important test that even famous and experienced players may not pass.

For example, the same Andrei Shevchenko, who could not adapt to England after Milan. So here, most likely, Zakharyan’s game will be more influenced by his psychology. The sooner he gets used to the Spanish language and culture and finds a common language with his partners, the sooner we will see another high-quality Russian footballer at a European club. He needs time, as was the case with Golovin in Monaco. It’s too early to judge anything,” RT quoted Byshovets as saying.

This season, 20-year-old Zakharyan has made 12 appearances for Real Sociedad.
