According to Zinnatulin, Fonseca's conflict was not with Yaroslav Rakitsky, but with Yevgeny Seleznev.
"Fonseku was accepted easily and well on the team. From day one he created a light and friendly atmosphere. As for the conflict with Rakitsky, it is not.
There was a moment with Seleznev. He was late for the day. As he explained to Fonseke, I do not know. He should appear in time, but gave himself an extra day of rest. Seleznev is a good football player, but he probably did not fit the concept, "said Zinnatulin.
The 29-year-old defender moved from Shakhtar to Zenit, signing a contract for 3.5 years.
