Zenit’s striker Artem Dzyuba collected his Russian Premier League medal as Deadpool

Zenit won their 3rd consecutive Russian Premier League title. Artem successfully completed his dream of wearing a Deadpool costume and accept his trophy. 

He can do everything, the best thing about him is regeneration, so it’s me,” Dzyuba told.

“I’ve had this costume for ages. It’s our third title in a row so I can allow myself the chance to wear it. I have long wanted to wear it, but during the second championship I did not dare, and during the first there was no time for that.”

Zenit’s captain scored a brace in the 6-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow before the festivities began in front of a large home crowd.

As soon as the match ended, Artem rushed into the dressing room and came out to the ground wearing the Deadpool costume. Artem went to the stage with his son to accept his champions medal.

“I’ll take it off as soon as I get to the locker room,” Dzyuba said. “It’s hot, I almost suffocated in it.”

Zenit has now won the Russian title seven times, three behind Spartak Moscow’s record since the post-Soviet league started in 1992.

Dzyuba only needs two goals to pass Aleksandr Kerzhakov’s as Russia’s all-time leading goalscorer. He has scored 29 international goals so far.
