We are for all colours in football


Olexandr ISHCHENKO: “Not skin color, but particular performers play football”

The head of FC Dynamo Kyiv football school Olexandr Ishchenko has shared his opinion as for racism and discrimination in football:

- I don’t know why should there be problems between Europeans and players from Africa or Latin America. I used to work with Lucky Idahor and Batista. They didn’t have problems on the field or in everyday life.

As for youth football… Recently we opposed Chelsea and they had eight and then nine players of color. That’s totally okay. This problem is ridiculous. Not skin color, but particular performers play on the field. Football is a perfect example of relations between countries and nations.
