Oleksandr Zinchenko invited 10-year-old Ukrainian refugee who dreamed of becoming a footballer to Manchester City training
Oleksandr Zinchenko has shared heart-warming pictures after inviting a 10-year-old Ukrainian refugee to train with him at Manchester City.
“This is Andrii,” Zinchenko wrote on Instagram. “He is 10 years old. Today he is already safe. Like most Ukrainians, he and his family were forced to flee their homes because of the war. Another 75 days ago, this boy dreamed of becoming a footballer and trained carefree with his team. Today, he dreams of only one thing – peace in our country. About peace. About normal life at home.”
Zinchenko is one of three Ukrainian footballers in the Premier League. Since the full-scale war started, he has been sharply criticizing Russian aggression.
