Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back.

"We are convinced that going to the stadium should give people a holiday feeling and positive emotions. That's why Zenit, as the first Russian Premier League club, has taken measures to reduce the number of police at the stadium, replacing them with stewards from private security organisations," he said on the club website Thursday.

There have been plans to reduce the police presence at Russian stadiums before but they have often fallen short.
