Mateo Cassierra, the outstanding 26-year-old Colombian attacker, has decided to continue his career in the ranks of Zenit Saint Petersburg. This decision came after Zenit rejected a tempting offer from Sevilla FC in the last few hours, as Víctor Orta had had him on his list of favorites for several months.
Cassierra has shone in the current Russian championship, playing a total of 16 games and scoring 14 goals for his team. His performance on the pitch caught the attention of several clubs, including Sevilla FC and Al-Shabab, who expressed interest in acquiring the talented striker’s services.
They won’t let him go
Zenit, representative of the city of Saint Petersburg, has maintained its clear stance on rejecting offers for Cassierra, TMW reports. This shows the club’s trust in the player and his contribution to the team. The Colombian has become a key figure in Zenit’s plan and his ability to find the net has been crucial in their quest for the league title.
For Cassierra, the decision to stay at Zenit is a vote of confidence in the club’s project and in his own development as a footballer. The opportunity to continue participating in one of the most demanding championships in Europe is an additional incentive for him to continue his growth and contribute to Zenit’s success.
