Insane! City turns it all upside down

‘Support means everything’
Zinchenko bid with the assist for Rodris’ 2-2 scoring, but not so long ago Zinchenko could hardly think of football.

“At one point, especially in the beginning (of the invasion, ed.), I hardly thought about football, because it was impossible to live in this time, given what was going on in my country,” Zinchenko said.

Despite the difficult time in his home country, he feels that he has received enormous support, and he is happy that he was able to pay back with a championship.

– The support means everything to me, says Zinchenko.

– What people have given me, what people have done for me during this period, the hardest in my life, is so appreciated. I will never forget that, never in my life.
