FC Shakhtar CEO Sergei Palkin commented on Vinicius Tobias’s transfer agreement

- What can you say about the agreement between Shakhtar and Internacional on Vinicius's move in February next year?

- We have been working on this player for a long time: we actually started when he was 16 years old, last year. We were negotiating, but could not come to an agreement back then. This went on for about six months. We have now reached an agreement with SC Internacional that Vinicius will join us in February 2022. We count on him very much and believe in him, we think that in the future he will become a regular in the senior team of Brazil. He is a very talented guy, really skill-savvy. We play attacking football, Vinicius fits well into our formation. In football terms, he was born exactly for the team like ours that practises attacking football. I think he will significantly progress and develop here.
