The President of the Russian Premier Liga congratulated the management, coaching staff, players and fans of Zenit St. Petersburg on retaining their RPL title.

"Congratulations to the fans, management, players and coaching staff of Zenit on winning their sixth RPL championship!”

Zenit have won the league for the second year in a row, and it's good to see how the team is developing. Defending the title is always more difficult, but head coach Sergey Semak has managed to motivate the team and unlock the potential of his players. In this difficult season, which was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic, Zenit did not lose their advantage, performed steadily and performed positively.

This championship is historical for several reasons. First of all, no one has ever become champions as early as matchday 26. Against direct rivals FC Krasnodar, Zenit played with confidence; the encounter turned out to be a real championship! Despite the defeat of FC Krasnodar, I want to note that matches between these clubs are bright, emotional, and attract a foreign audience. This clash is already perceived as a new classic of Russian football. Secondly, Zenit will become the first owner of our new trophy. I am sure that all champions and fans will appreciate its beauty.

I want to appeal to all football fans that aside from the new RPL champions’ determination, there are still many interesting matches ahead, such as the fight for European places, and the Russian Cup semi-finals and final. The end of the season will be unpredictable and exciting," said Pryadkin.
