Zinchenko blasts Putin over attacks on Ukraine; Says He Cannot it Back.
Reports have it that the Russian president Vladimir Putin is beginning to send troops, as bombs continue to hit different parts of Ukraine.
Zinchenko who plays for Premier League club Manchester City spent a lot of his career at Russian outfit, FC Ufa, before moving to England in 2016.
On his Instagram page in recent days, the 25-year-old released the following statement as per Daily Mail:
“The whole civilised world is worried about the situation in my country. I can’t stay back and strive to put my point across. In the photo – my country. The country where I was born and raised.
“A country whose colours I defend in the international sports arena. A country that we try to glorify and develop. A country whose borders must remain inviolable.
“My country belongs to Ukrainians and no one will ever be able to appropriate it. We will not give up! Glory to Ukraine.”
Zinchenko has become a vital member of the Manchester City squad under Pep Guardiola in recent years.
Known for his versatility, he has slotted in at left-back as cover for a few games and has not looked back since.
