The legendary defender finishes playing for Shakhtar

Olexandr Kucher joined the Donetsk club in the summer of 2006, making his debut in the Ukrainian League game against Metalist (5-0). The player immediately picked number 5 and had it for 11 years.

With his reliable and confident defensive performance, Kucher helped the Miners to win 20 trophies: the UEFA Cup, 7 championships, 6 Cups and 6 Super Cups of Ukraine. He also scored a few important goals: particularly memorable to the fans is the 2012 Ukrainian Cup final winner and his brace against Dynamo at the Donbass Arena. In total, the vice-captain made 295 appearances for Shakhtar and netted 12 goals.

FC Shakhtar thanks Olexandr Kucher for the years devoted to the Donetsk team, for his honest and professional work, his dedicated performance, his character, for the beautiful victories and for every trophy he claimed. We wish Olexandr new challenges and every success in his further football career.
