Moraes’ gift for a young fan

Wednesday, October 10, 2018



On October 10, a young fan attended Shakhtar's training session in Sviatoshyno

The 12-year-old Oleh Rudnytskyi from Cherkasy is a novice football player. This year, he has suffered a serious injury on the sports field due to the collapsed structure of a mobile basketball rack. The boy has a spinal cord injury and moves in a wheelchair.
Oleh and his teammates attended Shakhtar's morning training session, took pictures with the players and talked to Taison and Junior Moraes.
- I am delighted to have attended the training session! I like the exercises the Miners were doing, and I was particularly impressed by the wing attacks and the play itself, - Oleh shared his thoughts. - I have been a fan of Shakhtar for quite a long while, I know every player. It’s a pity, of course, that many players have gone on international duty, so I didn’t see everyone. I talked to Taison, he told me to get up to my feet as soon as possible and to come to visit them again. And Junior Moraes gave me the shirt as a gift!
Oleh dreams of recovering,  wants to start training again and to rejoin his teammates on the pitch. The schoolboy has been undergoing a rehabilitation course in Cherkasy.
