Alexey was seen by coach Slaven Bilic after outstanding performances in the Lokomotiv reserves and soon he joined the first team squad. Not so long later he showed his extraordinary skills and on 20th april 2013 he made his debiut in Russian Premier League against Kuban and two weeks later, in a game against Amkar, he scored for the first time. Many experts think that this very mature for his age midfielder soon change Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, who also started his career in “Parovozy” and for many years has been the captain of the team. He’s regularly capped to Russia youth national teams. What’s more, in the Lokomotive reserves we have also his twin brother, who is also a very skillful player. Maybe in few years we’ll have another twin brothers duo in Sborna team after Aleksey and Vasiliy Berezutskiy’s.
