Kokorin scored for the first time in 655 days! But his goal was still useless
Alexander has a goal and an assist in three matches for Aris.
Alexander Kokorin scored his debut goal for Aris. The striker appeared in the match with Karmiotissa after the break and in stoppage time for the second half reduced the gap in the score to a minimum. Kokorin received the ball from the left on the edge of the penalty area, burst into it and hit the goalkeeper hard between the legs.
Kokorin’s goal did not help Aris score points. “Karmiotissa” scored in the sixth and 77th minutes, and from the 75th minute played in the majority (after sending off the defender of the hosts).
Despite the defeat, Alexander’s team remains in first place with nine points after four matches. As for Karmiotissa, for which the former teammate of the Russian striker at Zenit, Tomas Gubochan, plays, this was the first victory for the club in the season.
By the way, Kokorin’s goal is the first in 655 days. This game was his third for Aris, and in his debut game (as a substitute) he scored an assist. In total, the striker has already played 133 minutes, and in two years in Serie A – 140 minutes in 10 matches. The forward has already received the first congratulations.
former CEO of Spartak
“Sasha is great, he is getting back in shape. If he is stronger, then it is good for everyone: both for him and for Russian football. You can only support him. Can Aris become the place where Kokorin will restart his career? I wouldn’t guess. The most important thing is that he played and scored. We need to get back in shape and get back in shape.”
