Early lifeEdit

Shatov was born and grew up in Nizhny Tagil, where the winter conditions made playing outdoor sports very difficult.[1] As a result, Shatov began playing futsal from the age of 14, before committing fully to association football two years later.[1]

Club careerEdit

UralEdit

Shatov made his professional debut in the Russian First Division in 2007 for FC Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast.[2] He was named Ural's Player of the Year after the 2010 season.[1]

AnzhiEdit

Although Shatov was scouted by CSKA Moscow, he accepted an offer to join Anzhi Makhachkala during the 2011-12 winter transfer window. Upon joining Anzhi, Shatov was teammates with Roberto Carlos and Samuel Eto'o. Shatov earned his first call-up to the Russian men's national team while playing at Anzhi.[1] At the end of Shatov's first season, the team finished in fifth place in the Russian Premier League and suffered several changes of coaches.

ZenitEdit

Shatov left Zenit on 29 July 2020, when his contract with the club expired.[4]

KrasnodarEdit

On 6 February 2018, he joined FC Krasnodar on loan until the end of the 2017–18 season.[5]

Rubin KazanEdit

On 29 July 2020, he signed a contract with Rubin Kazan for a term of 2 years with an additional 1-year extension option.[6]

International careerEdit

After receiving a call up by coach Fabio Capello, Shatov scored a goal in his debut for Russia, in a friendly match against Iceland which Russia won 2-0.[1]

On 2 June 2014, he was included in the Russia's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad.[7]
