Denis Cheryshev Childhood Story – Early Life and Family Background:
For Biography starters, Denis Dmitriyevich Cheryshev was born on the 26th-day of December 1990 in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
Denis was born to his father, Dmitri Cheryshev, a former Russian footballer and now a manager of the beautiful game.
Denis grew up with his younger brother Danila, but spent a larger part of his childhood with his beloved father, unlike his mother. Below is a photo of both son and dad.
Since early childhood, Denis was sure that he would become a football player in the future. The boy followed in the footsteps of his father and got fond of football.
His father Dmitri Cheryshev, on the other hand, helped lay the necessary foundation needed to see his beloved son through his dreams, which wasn’t a passing fantasy.
Dmitri his dad, was once a famous player of FC Dynamo Moscow before his permanent move to Europe. His stay in Europe influenced his family background.
Denis Cheryshev Childhood Biography – Living Spanish:
When Denis was five years old, his father, being a footballer, got an offer from the Spanish club, Sporting de Gijón. Dmitri accepted this offer. He left Russia and moved to Spain with his family.
Upon settling in Spain, he observed the language barrier to be a major issue and challenge to his wife and sons, especially Denis, who was to enrol at a football academy.
Knowing how disadvantaged it would be if Spanish wasn’t spoken, little Denis had to learn the language very quickly.
Little Denis had to attend a Spanish preparatory school where he learnt the Spanish language with his tutor.
During the first several months, he could hardly understand a word in Spanish without the help of a translator.
Nevertheless, sometime later, little Denis got accustomed to the Spanish culture and learned how to speak the Spanish language fluently, just as a native citizen does.
Denis Cheryshev Childhood Biography -Career BuildUp:
Sometime after the relocation and Spanish language training, little Denis began to attend the sports school of Sporting F.C., for which his father was playing at that time.
He was six years old when he joined Sporting Gijon Academy, staying there until he was 9.
Denis Cheryshev soon followed his dad to his next club, Burgos, entering its youth system at the age of 9 in the Year 2000.
After two years of playing at Burgos, Real Madrid came calling. Denis Cheryshev joined Real Madrid as they pegged him as an excellent talent during his trials.
Below is little Denis Cheryshev with his first Real Madrid shirt.
Denis Cheryshev was part of Real Madrid for 14 years, joining the club at the age of 12. In the youth club, he saw himself growing fast from a young teenager to an adult.
In 2009, Denis Cheryshev burst onto the scene with the B team and went on to score 22 goals in 109 games under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane.
Back then, he was awarded as “The Best Shooter in the Real Madrid Youth Team.” Subsequently, he got promoted to the Real Madrid senior team.
Why he Left Madrid:
Denis Cheryshev, pictured below, played only two matches for the Real Madrid senior team before he started warming the bench due to stiff competition between senior and junior players. Below is Denis Cheryshev with the Real Madrid Senior Team.

Denis’ request to leave the club was denied, leaving him with the option of a loan.

Denis Cheryshev Family Background:
Cheryshev’s family isn’t the typical Russian type who is usually homesick and who don’t like venturing out of their comfort zone to begin new challenges overseas.
Denis Cheryshev belongs to a family whose stereotype is coupled with the belief that they can flourish in other countries except for Russia.
Cheryshev, starting from his mother, father, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, and other relatives, has all learned to be independent of the Russian system.
To make that belief stand, even Denis’ father, Dmitri Cheryshev, retired from his professional career without any doubt to dedicate himself to the promotion of his son in football, as seen in the photo below.
The aim was to keep him from being homesick. At some point in time, Denis’ father decided to become a football coach.
This decision of his father was beneficial for Denis’s career of Denis. Below is a photo of Dmitri as a manager.
As far as Denis Cheryshev’s family is concerned, their final moment of waiting for glory is finally over.
Denis’ displays at the Russia 2018 World Cup have indeed brought a turning point to his career, personal life and family fame.
