Pep talks about the importance of Zinchenko
Friends back home sent Zinchenko countless videos of the Russian onslaught, while the player expressed gratitude for the worldwide support for his homeland.
The 25-year-old told Gary Lineker in an interview with BBC Sport: “I’m just crying. It’s been a week, but even when I drive from the training ground, I can cry. That’s everything on my mind. Imagine the place you were born, the place you grew up, is now just an empty lot.”
“This is a real war. What they’re doing is unacceptable. We need to stop this. The people over there are sending me the truth… they’re starving. Everyone just trying to survive, sleeping underground and in bunkers. “
Zinchenko emotionally added: ” To be honest, if it weren’t for my daughter, my family, I would be there . I know people from my country, their mentality and they all think exactly alike.”
“I am very proud to be a Ukrainian, and I will be a Ukrainian forever for the rest of my life. I know the people, the mentality of my people, they would rather die, and they will die. But they are. won’t give up.”
