Zenit striker Artyom Dziuba was included in the list of top 10 shooters in the top 10 leagues at the end of 2020 at number 14, according to the German publication Transfermarkt.

The Russian footballer took 14th place in the ranking, scoring 23 goals in 39 matches. In terms of the number of goals scored, Dziuba overtook strikers Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Milan), as well as Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) and Timo Werner (Chelsea). In the first place in the ranking is Bayern player Robert Lewandowski, who scored 47 goals in 44 matches.

Let us note that in the Russian media and social networks, the name of an outstanding Russian footballer has recently been often mentioned for a completely different reason.

In early November 2020, an intimate video featuring Dziuba appeared on the Runet.

The appearance of the video on the Web negatively affected the football player's career: against the background of the scandal, Artyom Dziuba was removed from the games of the Russian national team and deprived of the title of captain of St. Petersburg Zenit. Viewers were divided over the recording. Some believe that the captain of a football club, as a media person, should protect himself from reputational risks. Others blamed all those who disseminated an intimate video on the Internet, stressing that a footballer who was at home “is free to do what he wants”, as long as it does not violate the rights of others.
