Dynamo centre-forward Konstantin Tyukavin signed a new long-term contract with the parent club. After this procedure Konstantin shared his emotions and answered numerous questions from journalists and fans.
— I am delighted to extend my contract with the parent club where I grew up. I am very happy to sign it.
— You have already scored 31 goals for Dynamo. Which one is your favorite?
— My first backheel goal against Spartak in the Cup derby is the most memorable. And the nicest one, perhaps, I scored against Zenit, when Fabi made a long pass, I handled it well and managed to score. As it is, every goal and every assist are worthful to me.
— The negotiations lasted a long time, there were a lot of rumors. How did you survive this time from the psychological point of view?
— I was on a cold streak, but it happens. I was worried about it, I thought about it, but now everything is fine, and I am very happy.
— You have already come to the pitch with the captain's armband. Do you have the dream to become a team captain on a permanent basis?
— I remember this match against Ural, in which we won, and I scored a goal. It was very nice to come out on the pitch with the captain's armband. Of course, I would not refuse to become a permanent captain in the future.
— Do you communicate with Arsen Zakharyan?
— Of course, we communicate, and I hope to see him soon. Zakha was joking, saying that he missed me. It's nice that we are in touch with him and exchange messages almost every day.
— How big is your desire to leave for Europe and play there?
— There is such a desire, but I need to achieve something here first and then establish myself in Europe.
— Arsen did not move to a top club. Are you ready to repeat his path?
— I'm still playing at a top club. Well, if Real Sociedad are not top yet, then they will become better after Zakha's arrival.
— How many goals would you like to score this season?
— I aim to score a lot, at least 15 goals. And in the future, I dream to become the top scorer in the RPL.
— Do you like playing together with Bitello?
— He arrived a little late, and we had to set up our interaction. Right now things are getting better, you can see how he plays for our club. I think he will only do it better from now on. We have a good chemistry.
— Do you like Marcel Licka's communication style? How do you work with him?
— I like everything, we have a good working relationship. Sometimes we can even play the NHL game console with him. He's always open to it.
— You have an unusual number for a striker. Are you planning to ask Fedor Smolov to give you number 10?
— The number does not honor the player, but the player does the number. My favorite number is 7, under which I always performed for the Academy. Now Dima Skopintsev is playing under it. So I don't have plans to take it away from him, I like my number 70.
