Shakhtar magazine: latest issue

Dear supporters, the latest issue of Shakhtar magazine is out now.

The issue starts with the address of the club president Rinat Akhmetov to its readers:

- Alex Teixeira’s move to Jiangsu Suning FC has become a record one in the history of Ukrainian and Chinese football. I want to wholeheartedly thank Alex for the six years he spent at Shakhtar, for his outstanding, spectacular football performance and his huge contribution to our club’s victories. The fans will always remember his goals against Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid. I'm sure that Alex will enjoy a stunning and successful career.

The president of Shakhtar also shared his expectations ahead of the football season’s second part:

- Shakhtar are facing very important games soon. I am sure that every player will do everything possible and impossible on the pitch to return the Ukrainian League title to the team, to win the Cup and produce a decent performance in the Europa League. The fans expect more trophies from us, while we aim to win every match, and win it in style.

Kicker reporter Miron Goykhman outlined in a copyright article his vision of the upcoming UEFA Europa League Round of 32 clash between Schalke and Shakhtar:

- Shakhtar and Schalke enjoy attacking. But, I think, the Pitmen will need to play a more cautious football game. The Royal Blues have Sane and Choupo-Moting operating on the flanks, who should be prevented from gathering pace. At the same time, Schalke, in general, have rarely played exposing themselves this season. The team operate keeping an eye on their defensive third.

Make sure you don’t miss the story about the behind-the-scenes details of Shakhtar’s US training camp: how the team survived a tornado, how they attended Madonna’s performance and saved the US fauna. Also find in the issue the analysis of the season’s first part by Oleksandr Sopko, the life journey of Gennadiy Snegirev, a frank conversation with the talented defender of Shakhtar U19 team Yuri Synytskyi and the long-awaited Shakhtar dream team 2015.
