Each victory costs Zenit almost 2.5 million euros. Efficiency of transfers of Russian football clubs

IN THE NPS THE MOST EFFECTIVE “LIVERPOOL”. And what about US? Recall that the English journalist Kevin Palmer having studied the data of Transfermark, found that Man City has spent the most in the Premier League over the past five seasons (that's a surprise!) (602 million pounds). Behind the townspeople are Manchester United (485 million) and Arsenal (268 million), while the winner of the Champions League 2018/19 and five minutes later the champion of England 2019/20 Liverpool (108 million) took Palmer’s ranking is only 14th. In other words, in the medium term, investments in the team of Jürgen Klopp turned out to be the most effective. Of course, the expenditure side of the budget of each club consists not only of transfers. There are also salaries, which in cases with superstars devour a lot of money. Nevertheless, it became interesting to us what the “transfer efficiency” is not in the nuclear submarine far from us, but in our own RPL, the next draw of which is about to begin on June 19th. To do this, we examined the same period from the season 2015/16 to the current inclusive. And they compared the investments of the Premier League clubs in the newcomers with the number of points scored. For teams that rose to the elite from the lower divisions, only RPL indicators were taken into account. GINER – AN EXAMPLE FOR PETER If you look at our results, we can make the wrong conclusion that the most effective in Russia is going to move to Lower Novgorod "Tambov". In the 2019/20 season, the debutants of the Premier League scored 25 points, took 11th place and did not spend a cent on transfers. But, of course, the result of CSKA is more indicative. Having spent 32.4 million euros in acquisitions over five years, the club Evgeny Giner scored 272 points (second place after Zenith), won gold once (Zenit will probably have three) and achieved almost the same as in St. Petersburg, the average place in the table (2.8 versus 2.6). At the same time, Zenit swelled 229 million in transfers in the same period and scored 287 points. Accordingly, each point cost the brainchild of Gazprom is almost seven times more expensive than CSKA. Such investments could be justified only by much higher European Cup results than other RPL representatives. However, in the international arena, Petersburgers are not competitive. So their transfer efficiency should be recognized as rather mediocre. The sheepskin is clearly not worth the candle. SOMEone Explicitly overpays The most controversial picture, as usual, in Spartak. On the one hand, the red-and-white won the 2016/17 championship, which in the eyes of the fans justified most of the expenses, on the other, in the rest of the seasons they didn’t look the best (average position for five years – 4.4), skipping Zenit ahead, CSKA, Krasnodar (3.6) and Lokomotiv (3.8). At the same time, only Petersburgers spent more on Spartak transfers. Well, the guard itself was, of course, in Dynamo and Rubin. Just think about it: each point earned costs them three times more than CSKA, although in the table the blue and white just now (this is an intermediate result) crawled to the border of the European competition zone, and Kazan only once rose above tenth place (with the “loser” Xavi Gracia ). For comparison: Ural, which occupies similar places on average (10.2), spent just 2.5 million euros on newcomers – 24 (!) Times less than Rubin. Rostov, which for being in the upper half of the table (and now the team of Valery Karpin really claims to be in Champions League 2020/21) was enough for 21 million transfer expenses, spread over five years. When looking at all these metamorphoses, big bosses who invest in Russian football are inevitable the thought should arise: are they not overpaying? Against the backdrop of a pandemic, you will agree that the idea is by no means idle. Transfer cost of one point earned in the RPL 2015/16 – 2019/20
