Andrey Vatutin, CSKA President: Guard/forward position was the most weakened this offseason for our team. Alexey is signed to add the depth at the wings. We understand that it will be difficult for Zozulin to compete for the leading positions in our team but we like his ambitions, desire to improve, great personal qualities. Alexey is a well-known, high-class player and he is ready to work hard to help the team with his skills and experience.

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach: Alexey Zozulin is a versatile player who can help us on 2 and 3 positions. I hope that his huge desire, hard work and competitiveness will help us next season.
