Artyom’s parents, by the nature of their activities, had nothing to do with football. Father, Sergey Vladimirovich, a Ukrainian by nationality, served in law enforcement agencies, played football himself, but as an amateur. Artem’s mother at the time of meeting her husband worked as a salesman in a grocery store.
They lived, like many families of those years, not richly. At first they huddled in a communal apartment, then they acquired their own housing. In 1992, a replenishment appeared in the family – daughter Olga was born.

Artyom has been fond of football since early childhood. At the age of 8, the child was already enrolled in the Spartak Academy. The coaches saw great potential in the boy, Alexander Yartsev paid special attention to the young talent. It was with the patronage of Alexander that the sports career of Artem Dzyuba began.
Becoming a football player FC Spartak
In 2005, Dzyuba moved to the backup team of the “adult” team. Soon after a confident demonstration of talent, Artyom was allowed to train with the main team.
Dzyuba’s professional career began at Spartak
A year later, the athlete made his debut in the main team of Spartak, when the football club met with the Yekaterinburg team Ural in the match for the Russian Cup.
The young footballer officially got into the main team of FC Spartak in 2007, and in the very first season he managed to score 5 goals in 27 matches, for which Dziuba was awarded the status of “top scorer of the season”. Spartak took second place in the domestic championship, respectively, Artem Dziuba became the silver medalist of the competition.

In 2009, during the team’s stay in Austria, Vladimir Bystrov, a club player, lost a large amount (23 thousand rubles), which was later found at Dziuba’s. Artyom reacted categorically: he did not take the money, he was set up.
In connection with the incident, Artyom was transferred to the Tom team, where he quickly gained the authority of teammates and club fans. The young guy became a main striker, scoring 10 goals in a season. After the end of the season and the demonstration of excellent results, Dziuba returned to Spartak.

The 2011/2012 season was very successful for Dzyuba’s career. He scored 1 of 3 goals in the match with the Swiss “Basel” (score 3:2 in favor of “Spartak”). In 2012, the forward was honored to wear the captain’s armband. The first match (away match with Zenit on May 6, 2012) in the new powers ended with the victory of Spartak with a score of 3:2.
However, soon the football player’s career began to decline. The football player had to give way to a new player, Emmanuel Emenike, and when the head coach changed to Valery Karpin in November 2012, Dzyuba became a regular on the bench.
In July 2013, on loan, Dzyuba moved to FC Rostov, where in the very first “battle” against Terek he scored two goals and led the team to victory. In the next match with the well-known Tomyu, Artyom scored a hat-trick. As part of the Rostov team, the young football player was awarded a silver place in the Russian Championship with 17 goals, losing to Seydou Doumbia from CSKA. As part of Rostov, Dzyuba also won his first prize – the Cup of Russia.
After a successful season, Artyom returned to Spartak. In the fall of 2014, the contract with the Moscow club ended, and Artyom refused to renew it, as he received a better offer from FC Zenit. The amount of the proposed contract reached €3.3 million, and in the summer of 2015 Artyom joined the legendary St. Petersburg team.
