IT’S TIME TO SOUND THE ALARM
This is a wake-up call for Artem. The winning team usually does not change. Although this old rule does not always work.
After this victory, Adana Demirspor topped the standings with 16 points. Why change anything when everything is going well?
Therefore, there are several reasons for concern for the fate of Artem.
The first reason. It was not Dziuba who replaced him, but the Norwegian forward Fredrik GulbrandsenArtem’s direct competitor for a place at the base, and not only came out, but scored a goal.
Second reason. In the previous round, without the Russian striker, Adana Demirspor beat the reigning Turkish champion Trabzonspor at home – 3:2. And now the second victory without a Russian on the road. In the next round, Adana Demirspor hosts one of the giants – Galatasaray. Will Dziuba release Vincenzo Montella on the field at least for a replacement?
By the way, in Antalya, Artem’s former partner in Zenit, and now the defender of Adana Demirspor, was sent off in the 39th minute. Yaroslav Rakytsky. For which he was subjected to obstruction by the fans of his team. Home Defender Fedor Kudryashov was substituted in the 77th minute. His Antalyaspor fans consider one of the main culprits of the defeat.
Dziuba’s last match
Recall how Dziuba started at Adana Demirspor. In the first match, he goes to the base and scores a goal for Fenerbahce, although his team lost – 2:4. In the second match, Artem is again at the base, but there are already complaints about his game – he is passive, he constantly gets into offsides. Then a substitution in the 63rd minute against Hatayspor.
Adana Demirspor escaped defeat in the end – 1:1. Vogue episode in a goal when serving in the penalty area Dziuba imposed a fight on the defenders, although he did not directly participate in the scoring episode itself.
It is interesting that the fans, right during the game in social networks, demanded from Vincenzo Montella release Dziuba to save the match.
Total: Artem played only three matches in which he scored one goal.
Conclusion. It is clear that Dziuba arrived in Turkey in far from the best shape. And there are objective reasons for this – the forward did not go through the preseason centrally. Leonid Slutsky out of kindness, he allowed the striker to train with Rubin for a while. But how he loaded a player who is not part of his team is not clear.
Artem urgently needs to get in shape, and there are no doubts about his class. Already in the Turkish championship, he can definitely leave a bright mark. But it is urgent to turn the tide, they do not like to wait long abroad, and especially in Turkey, where there are hot morals. And Artyom can turn the tide only by quickly bringing himself into condition and convincing him of this. Montellu in training. Then he will get a second chance and it will be important not to miss it. The third in Europe do not like to give.
