Hulk happy at Zenit

Created on 28 Sept., 2012 7:04 PM GMT

Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk has moved to dismiss reports he is unhappy at the Russian Premier League club.

The Brazilian moved to Russia from Porto at the beginning of September and has scored twice for the reigning champions, although there have been rumours he has struggled to make the transition.

Reports on Friday also claimed that a bomb had been found outside the club's training ground with a photo of the striker taped to it.

But, speaking before the incident, Hulk was swift to dismiss talk of his supposed unrest.

"I think with time I will adapt, but it is clear that the fact that they speak another language in Russia creates some difficulties," he told R-Sport.

"Still, I feel that the climate within the team is fantastic. I'm happy to play for Zenit, I have absolute support from everyone here. I'm trying to fit into the team and Zenit generally."

With 55 goals in 99 appearances for Porto, big things are expected of the Brazil international in front of goal, and he hopes to recreate the same goalscoring form in the coming weeks.

"I have no problems with anyone. I'm just trying to do my job the best way that I can. I'm very happy with my role in the team which is to score goals," Hulk said.
