Russian - Nigerian Defender, Brian Idowu Professes Love For Zenith St PetersburgA day before Amkar Perm’s game in the Russian Premier League against Zenith St Petersburg, Brian Idowu has professed his admiration for the opponents, saying he would love to return to the club before hanging up his boots.

The defender had been on the books of the Academy Team of  Zenith St Petersburg, but did not debut for the four - time champions before leaving for Amkar Perm in 2010.

“As a boy, always dreamed to go to the football field in the jersey of  Zenith . But I understand that it is very difficult.

“To begin, I need to get into the main part here in Perm, prove that I can be a top-tier player, such as Danny.

“And only then you can count on an invitation to a club such as Zenith. But again, the desire to remain. I will work to try to establish myself from the best side,” Brian Idowu told

In an earlier interview with the Russian Press, Brian Idowu admitted that it would be difficult for him to wear the jersey of the Russian National Team, and would consider representing the Super Eagles if he is invited.

He committed his future to Amkar Perm this summer by signing a three - year contract.  The defender has a Nigerian dad and a Russian - Nigerian mother.
