Viktor’s father Vitaliy was a professional goalkeeper. He started his career in FC Nyva Vinnytsia, where he featured alongside Vitaliy Kosovskyi. Several years later he left for Israel. That’s where Viktor was born.

Tsyhankov jr. started training at VinnytsiaSportsSchool when a kid. He’s been attacking player since childhood.

Kyiv pleased more

In 2010/11 season Viktor moved to Kyiv. In the first half of the Youth League he featured for his native team and in the second – for Dynamo.

Still the first to spot the talented performer were… FC Shakhtar Donetsk. After two-day trial he returned to Vinnytsia and was invited to FC Dynamo Kyiv. As we see Tsyhankov chose our club.

Success and star landmarks

Tsyhankov caught the eye of football community with his play. At first he helped Ukraine to score the decider against Germany in Euro-2013 elite round.

Later Viktor became the best halfback of the prestigious tournament in Moscow despite the failure of his team.

After that his brace helped the White-Blues to win the 2012/13 Ukrainian National Youth Competition bronze.

As Tsyhankov graduated from DynamoAcademy he joined the reserve team.

This season football wunderkind already works at the training camp with the main squad though is only 16! He made his debut for the White-Bleus as they played friendly against SC Schwaz.

Viktor has confessed that his idols are Lionel Messi and Mario Götze! It’s interesting that both started featuring at the highest level when they were very young (16 and 17 consequently).

It’s difficult to find better exemplars for the talented and promising Dynamo player.
