Welcome to Saint Petersburg, Adrien!

Zenit signed a contract with a French forward Adrien Moerman until the end of the season. The newcomer chose 18 number for his jersey.

The 34-year-old player has a broad experience playing in his home country of France, as well as in Spain and Turkey. In most recent years, he played for Barcelona, Anadolu Efes and Monaco.

Moerman helped Efes win the Euroleague twice, in 2021 and 2022. In addition, the forward also has two champion titles in Turkey and three of them in France.

Moerman started this season at Monaco. In 16 Euroleague games, the forward averaged 2,9 points and 2,8 rebounds. In January, the club announced the parting with the player by mutual agreement.

Zenit forward Adrien Moerman:

– I am very happy to be here now because, firstly, I’ll be able to finish the season, and secondly, I have not played basketball for three weeks. Basketball means a lot to me, so now I’m happy.

I thought about the proposal for about an hour. When I found out that Zenit is interested and that I could finish the season here, I immediately said yes to my agent. I know how difficult it is to find a team during the season. This opportunity to finish the year is like some kind of redemption for me.
