After several weeks of gone and come, Malcom finally left to the Zenith of Saint Petesburgo by some 40 million euros. The Brazilian put course to Russia to face a new adventure in his career after happening a year in Barcelona. The culés recovered the investment that did by him does a year and the operation was beneficial for both parts.

The ex of the Girondins of Burdeos hardly explained for Ernesto Valverde the past course and only had minutes when there was lesionados in the forward. The fans thinks that the Brazilian deserved many more opportunities, but the 'Txingurri' never was an enamoured of his game. This exit could allow him grow like footballer in a different league and in an environment that does not have at all that see with the one of LaLiga.

But the recibimiento that has received Malcom has not been the one who he expected , since it has had racist problems at all more land. It seems that when it jumped to the terrain of game in his debut against the Krasnodar, a part of the fans showed a banner to protest by his signing. The banner in question said the following: "Thanks to the leaders by his fidelity to the traditions". Some words that defended the tradition that the Zenith no fichara black players.

By fault of this regrettable episode, the Zenith would be posing sell to the player in the next market of signings​ of winter. An unusual movement by part of the Russian team of the that informs Ria Novosti. "The Zenith could sell to Malcom in January by problems with the racism. The fans have not accepted him" , explain in this half.

The Zenith has not wanted to admit this episode and has affirmed in a communiqué that all misunderstood and that the banner does not have the racist dyes of which has spoken . The Russian group even said that these words do not have "at all that see with the reality". "The Zenith has a long tradition to invite to the club to the best players of all the world, independently of his origins, etnia and nationality", says the communiqué. Only the time will say if Malcom goes back to suffer some racist episode in Russia.

The substitute of Malcom

In the FC Barcelona have to find him now substitute to Malcom that like revulsivo always gave the level. Everything will depend on if Neymar finish returning to Can Barça or no. If the 'crack' of the PSG goes back, will not do lacking to think in a relief for the left-handed extreme, since there will be another forward more and the minutes will deliver between which already are. But if the ex of the Saints remains in Paris, Carles Pérez or Abel Ruiz could occupy the place that leaves vacancy the now player of the Zenith.
