Zelimkhan Bakaev said he does not consider himself a traitor after leaving Spartak for Zenit
“It is significant for me that many veterans supported me: both Spartak and others. I do not consider myself a traitor. Of course, I must be prepared for whistling and other manifestations. But I hope this will not last long. Will I celebrate the goal if I score against Spartak? I won’t,” Bakaev said in an interview with Championat.com.
