Malcolm described the level of the Saudi championship as very high

Former Zénith footballer Malcolm who currently plays for Al-Hilal, told that the Saudi championship, although different from the Russian Premier League (RPL), is very high and continues to grow.

In August 2023 “Zenith” announced the transfer of Malcolm to “Al-Hilal” . The transfer amount was 60 million euros. On Sunday, the Brazilian visited Zenit’s training camp in Doha and attended the team’s evening training session.

— How did you get used to a new country, championship, club?

— Life in Saudi Arabia is of course different from life in Europe and in particular in Russia, where I had the joy of performing on stage. But, thank God, the adaptation was very quick for me and my family, because I arrived at Al-Hilal with a great desire to continue winning, to continue the traditions that I had at Zenit. The thirst for victories and titles remains the same. I was very well received and helped with adaptation, so I feel noticed.

— In Russia, thanks in part to you, we now follow the Saudi Arabian Championship much more closely. What do you think of the tournament and the rivalry between Al-Hilal and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nasr club?

— The level of the Saudi championship is, in my opinion, very high. Moreover, it continues to grow, as many football players are already participating in this tournament and are and continue to be idols for many. With extensive experience in Europe.

Of course, the Saudi championship is different from the Russian championship, which is also at the highest level. I remember very well that when we played Zenit in the European Cup, we always fought against any team. But at the same time, my current championship is difficult, and it is not easy to win. I can say this with complete confidence. At the same time, I’m happy to play it now and help raise the level of the tournament. I’m sure it will continue to grow,” Malcolm told .

As part of Zenit, Malcom became a four-time champion of Russia, a four-time winner of the Super Cup and a winner of the Russian Cup.
