Shakhtar presents its annual report

Friday, October 11, 2019



Traditionally, on October 11, the club presents its report on the past season

Today 23 years ago, Rinat Akhmetov became the president of FC Shakhtar. Since then, the club has been pleasing the fans with some outstanding and rewarding performance, setting just one goal - to win every game. In 2019, for the third time in a row, the Miners secured the golden double, becoming the most decorated club in independent Ukraine.
The 2018/19 report contains the results and statistics, performance results of the first team and the Academy, as well as financial and detailed operational figures of different departments of FC Shakhtar.

President’s statement:
Rinat Akhmetov:

“This season, Shakhtar have secured the golden double for the third consecutive time by winning the league title and the Ukrainian Cup. This implies just one thing: the team continue showcasing consistently high standards of their performance and results, even though they have been playing away from home for a few years now. But this makes our every victory all the more valuable.
Paulo Fonseca made a big contribution to Shakhtar's success in the reporting year. I would like to thank Paulo and his coaching staff for the seven trophies won in the recent three seasons - three league titles, three Cups, and one domestic Super Cup.
Shakhtar enters the new football season with a new manager at the helm. Luis Castro is an experienced specialist with very good ideas and big ambitions. Most importantly, he knows how to work with young talents, how to unlock their potential. This is particularly important now, after a few young and very talented footballers have joined the team - we are all relying on them in the near future. I am convinced that the coaching experience of Luis Castro will help the players reach a whole new level, which means that Shakhtar will get even stronger.
Finally, it is in the 2018/19 season that Shakhtar became the most decorated club in Ukraine. 34 trophies, with each of them resulting from some terrific work of the coaching staff, the players, the management and employees. But above all, special credit goes to our fans - the most important, the 12th Man! Thanks to the faith and support of the fans, we have always been and will be strong and ambitious. Thank you, dear friends! Shakhtar play for you! And we will do our best for you to take delight in Shakhtar's attacking and spectacular performance and to enjoy new victories both in Ukraine and internationally!”
