Shakhtar in Odesa: preparing for Ukrainian Super Cup

Wednesday, July 13, 2016



On July 13, the Pitmen have returned to Ukraine

In the afternoon, the plane with the Donetsk delegation on board landed at the airport of Odesa. After having lunch and a short rest, the Orange-Black held a training session at a local stadium. They worked on quick transitions from defence to attack and organising defensive performance. Facundo Ferreyra and Vasyl Kobin trained individually.

- We are in a fighting mood. We all are looking forward to the game against Dynamo, - said Shakhtar defender Bohdan Butko. - Especially since I now have additional motivation: the day before yesterday, my wife gave a birth to our son. I am extremely happy. We had a very good training camp in the Netherlands. We worked on tactics, played against some interesting teams. Now we are going to check in the game against Dynamo what we have learnt.

Tomorrow morning, the team will have rest. Paulo Fonseca has scheduled a training session for the evening. We want to remind you that on July 16, at the stadium of Chornomorets, Shakhtar are to take on Dynamo in the Super Cup tie.
