Marchisio scores his first goal for Zenit
- The Juventus legend is settling to life in Russia
- Unfortunately for him, Zenit have suffered a defeat
Claudio Marchisio started for Zenit in their afternoon league match against league Anzhi Makhachkala and in the 47th minute of the match, he broke the deadlock of the game with a rebound goal away from home, opening his account in Russia. Unfortunately, Zenit lost their first game of the season 2-1.
The 32-year-old midfielder left Juventus this summer after spending 25 years at the club. At Zenit, Marchisio is earning €6-6.5m per season, with a series of bonuses linked to games played. That means that, as long as he can prove his fitness, the 32-year-old can take his actual salary much higher.
