As to a job in Russia, it's been some time since I left the club, and  the situation regarding my future will become clearer in a month,. I can say that I respect all countries. I keep an eye on Zenit, and I'm pleased with Sergey Semak's success. I occasionally have conversations with Tymoshchuk and Semak. I have fond memories of the time when I coached Zenit."
