Russian police discover a fake bomb with a picture of Hulk attached to it outside Zenit St. Peterburg's training ground this week.

Zenit St. Petersburg have been sent a fake bomb with a photo of summer signing Hulk attached to it, Russian police have confirmed.

The authorities were called to the club's training ground to discover the pretend bomb, representing the latest incident in a string of disruptions since the striker was bought from Porto for a reported £32m.

The Russian outfit have also been criticised for paying over the odds for midfielder Axel Witsel, who was also a new acquisition in the summer.

Aleksandr Kerzhakov and Igor Denisov were both sent to play in the reserve team after complaining about the new players' wages.
