'The fact that I didn't play for almost six months wasn't pleasant. But when you have a chance to prove yourself you must do it,' Pavlyuchenko said.

'You just have to wait for your moment and score goals. If I scored every time I would be in the team all the time, no doubts.

'I hope this year it won't be the same story. To be honest, in the last year when I didn't play much I had thoughts about returning to Russia. Now I do not want to move back.'
