The boys are ready physically for the second part of the season, the whole team are not far from to the optimum condition. We are focusing not only on the upcoming game with Schalke, but also on the domestic championship and Cup - said the defender of Shakhtar Vyacheslav Shevchuk. - At the training camp, our youth have impressed a lot. One can see their enthusiasm and desire to make progress. Individually, it is hard to single anyone out, all of them are very talented players. If they continue to work in the same spirit, they will enjoy great future.
