"RSC Anderlecht is certainly a great club, but I finally decided to join Zenit Saint Petersburg, because they showed me their ambition and I thought that I could help them. I spoke with my family and agreed to continue my career in Russia.
Russian League is better than the championship of Belgium and those were the reasons that made me select Zenit Saint Petersburg, which are fighting every season for the title in their country and always participating in Champions League.
Playing at Premier League and German Bundesliga taught me a lot of things, it was a real school for me, but I think that my decision to join PAOK at summer of 2014 was the best for my career.
I performed in many great matches with PAOK and lived incredible moments in Greece, such as the two goals I scored against Borussia Dortmund at the Europa League of 2015-16 season", said the 25-year-old international.
