First it was Zenit captain Igor Denisov who took issue with the arrival of extravagantly paid foreign signings Hulk and Axel Witsel, then it was St. Petersburg's local communist party, now a fake bomb maker has voiced his displeasure the only way they know how.
A fake home-made bomb, hidden in a bag, has been found at Zenit St Petersburg's training ground along with a picture of striker Hulk, Russian media reported on Friday.
While checking the device, police found the picture of the new signing with the accompanying words: "Hulk out!".
It could have been just about anyone behind this very clear and very disturbing message. Hopefully the note that accompanied it is studied by a handwriting expert though, because if it was written in all caps with phrasing and punctuation like that, the jealous perpetrator becomes quite clear...
