Ukrainian striker Spanish club “Malaga” Eugene Seleznev commented on the transfer of defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy from Shakhtar in the Russian “Zenith”.
“Rakytskyy Transfer? Whatever may be said of this “great coach” (Paulo Fonseca – ed), it was his decision. If he belongs to the players, the penny price.
Shevchenko has announced the national team of Ukraine for the matches against Portugal and Luxembourg – Rakitskiy out of the list. Rakitskiy got worse to play defense? I do not agree. This man for President, for the club he’d played for life, if one person treated him with respect. He is the best defender of Ukraine.
Lucescu has built one… He is a great coach. I created a diamond. And for three years to ruin everything… Fly from Eintracht Frankfurt, the seventh place of the championship of Germany.
I don’t think Rakitskiy made a mistake. Not in political terms. A man just removed from Shakhtar. Where to go? On the street? If there are no options? Or stop playing football? Did all that would he left. He was the last of that part of the miner, in which it is impossible to get it,” said Seleznyov in an interview with YouTube channel “Scorer”.
We will remind, Yaroslav Rakitskiy excluded from the national team of Ukraine.
As previously wrote Znayu Yaroslav Rakitskiy has moved from Shakhtar Donetsk to Russian “Zenit”. Note that for the Donetsk club Rakitskiy was 16 years old.
