Let’s just say that Alexander Kokorin has a wild side to him.

  • Fiorentina has signed Russian striker Alexander Kokorin from Spartak Moscow, the club has confirmed.
  • Kokorin has quite the wild history and has been involved in a few controversies in the past.
  • In 2017, Kokorin was filmed firing a gun and shooting two bullets in the air during a friend's wedding ceremony.
  • The striker then again hit the headlines in 2018 after being imprisoned for seriously injuring a government official and the driver of a Russian TV presenter.
  • Alexander was released in 2019 after spending nearly one whole year behind bars for his crimes.
  • What makes this signing even questionable is that Kokorin has only scored 24 league goals in the last 5 years – including just 2 goals in 8 Russia Premier Liga games this season.
