Claudio Marchisio joined Zenit St Petersburg because ‘I couldn’t betray Juventus’ and expects Serie A to get off to a better restart than the Bundesliga.
Marchisio signed for Zenit in September 2018 but retired from football a year later, having made just 15 appearances during his time in Russia.
When asked on Instagram why he did not move to another Serie A club, he admitted his ties to Juve were too strong.
“I couldn’t stay in Serie A, I couldn’t betray Juventus. That was the main reason,” he explained.
