One of the strongest Russian full-backs. Plays modern football and lends active support to attacks from the right wing. Regularly provides his teammates with razor-sharp assists and surprises his opponents by unexpectedly moving into space behind their backs and finishing the attack. He was on the Barcelona short-list when the Catalan club was looking for a right-back to replace Dani Alves.
