“It simply came to our notice then. I can assure you that even conversations on this topic were not raised. When this whole situation began, there were of course subterfuges, but I replied to everyone: “Learn Russian, gentlemen, it will come in handy,” Lunev said.

The footballer did not speak publicly about the fighting in Ukraine. But after a scandal over Facebook and Instagram (banned in Russia for extremist activities) that allowed calls for violence against the Russian military, Lunev announced his departure from Instagram for ideological reasons. The goalkeeper wrote that he is out of politics, but he has always been proud and proud of the fact that he is from Russia and loves his homeland.

Lunev joined Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2021 after his contract with Zenit St. Petersburg expired. At the moment, the 30-year-old goalkeeper has played only one match for the Leverkusen team.

In Russia, Lunev played, in addition to Zenit, for Ufa, Moscow’s Torpedo, Moscow’s Saturn and Kaluga. The goalkeeper has seven matches for the first national team of Russia.
