Zenit St. Petersburg striker Hulk admits that he is struggling at the Russian club.

Zenit St. Petersburg striker Hulk has admitted that he is 'feeling the pressure' in the early stages of his career with the Russian club.

The 26-year-old completed a record transfer move from Porto in the summer, but he has scored just one goal in five league appearances this season.

It is also understood that the Brazilian's arrival at the club has caused strain in the camp due to the high wages he earns in comparison to his teammates.

"I'm feeling pressured. Today, I notice that I feel more pressure than when I arrived at Zenit, but I always try to keep my feet on the ground. Nevertheless, I am happy to be at this club," he told AS.

Hulk has scored six goals in 18 games for Brazil.
