Having signed the contract for Anji Oleg Shatov answered questions of the club`s official website:
“I really wanted to play in the Premier League and very happy that my step forward is connected exactly with this club!
Anji is known and spoken about in the whole world, many famous players are ready to transfer here that`s why I was pleased to know that this club got interested in me. I know that the coach is interested in me, this always serves as an additional motivation.
Yes, I was about to transfer to CSKA but whatever happens, happens for the best. Anji is the brightest and the most ambitious club, it`s very interesting and important to be a part of new history. I hope that I`ll live up to the trust and make the fans enjoy my play!”
