Controversial Russian forward Alexander Kokorin has signed a new contract until the end of the season with Zenit St Petersburg, which is the Ukrainian defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy.
On reaching an agreement with the 29-year-old striker said the General Director of club Alexander Medvedev. The functionary said that the club took the decision to allow the striker to continue to be in the “Sochi”.
The previous contract 29-year-old Kokorin was due to expire on 30 June, which hampered his performance in RPL after the resumption of the season. Medvedev stressed that the agreement was technical in nature and agreed with the player, and “Sochi”.
In September 2019, the striker was released from prison (he was convicted of the fight) and returned to the St. Petersburg club, but Zenit was not allowed to make the player into the application season. Kokorin has played 4 matches and scored 3 goals for Sochi, where he moved from Zenit on loan.
