Alan Dzagoev leaves PFC CSKA
Russian midfielder and PFC CSKA agreed to terminate the contract by mutual agreement.
— Alan will go down into the club’s history as one of the most successful players, — said general director Roman Babayev. — Dzaga joined us at the age of 17 and immediately began to show the highest level of play. Alan has a unique talent and football intellect. Multiple trophies through these years are unimageable without Dzagoev, and his ‘golden’ goal against Rubin will be remembered by every PFC CSKA fan for the rest of his life. Despite many injuries, Alan always showed character, he helped the team in the difficult moments. In the last months Alan gained less playing time, but player of his level shouldn’t sit on the bench. We had a gentlemen’s agreement that Alan could leave if he plays less. We wish Alan to enjoy playing football as much as possible. And after his retirement we’ll wait him to join the club’s structure.
After the game against Rostov, there will be a ceremony honoring Alan, Mario Fernandes and other players, who are leaving the club. We invite all our fans for this game!
