Official: Marchisio joins Zenit

Post by Hassan » Tue Sep 04, 2018 6:46 am

Former Juventus star Claudio Marchisio has officially signed a two-year contract for Zenit St Petersburg.

The 32-year-old was a free agent after terminating his contract with the Bianconeri by mutual consent.

Zenit are in the Europa League this season, placed in Group C with FC Kobenhavn, Bordeaux and Slavia Prague.

The Italy international is from Turin and spent practically his entire career with Juventus, coming up through their youth academy and playing for them in Serie B.

He had only a brief one-season loan spell at Empoli in 2007-08.

Marchisio had been linked with numerous clubs outside of Italy, including Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, Nice and MLS club Montreal Impact.

However, he has chosen to go to Russia for Zenit St Petersburg.

The club has many ties to Italian football, as Domenico Criscito played there for many years, while their previous Coaches include Luciano Spalletti and Roberto Mancini.
