Athletistic/Football. Former Russian national team player Andrei Tikhonov said Zakharyan needs to do more at Real Sociedad.

“Zakharyan was a leader at Dynamo and did not put much effort into it. His data is excellent, he is a gifted guy, but it is very difficult to immediately adapt to a professional mindset, to training intensity, to comply with everything that should be.

Respect for everything and intensity of training. Because of this, Zakharian was injured. At Dynamo he had practically no injuries. And here muscle injuries are affected by changes in training intensity and volume. He is talented, we don’t have much, but you have to work three times as hard on it,” Tikhonov told Match TV.
