Today, August 3, Yaroslav Rakits’kyy marks the birthday. The defender of Shakhtar and Ukraine national team turns 28 years old

Since 2003, Yaroslav played at Shakhtar Academy to make his maiden outing for the first team six years later. Rakits’kyy became one of the Donetsk side leaders long ago. The player made 279 apps and claimed 12 goals, also securing 17 trophies with Shakhtar. In April of this year, the defender signed a five-year deal with the club and said that his heart had always been and would remain orange-and-black.

We wish Yaroslav a very happy birthday, good health, victories in every match, to conquer new football heights, as well as family bliss, joy and well-being!
