Of course, work in a professional team, especially such as the miner, is very different from the Academy. You can encounter the taken place persons, the best players of Ukraine and Europe, players of the national teams. For me it is a great honor and I’m very happy for the people that are in a club like Shakhtar”, — quotes Duljaj press service of the club.

I like this system, when the team plays, how he trains, and he trains how he plays. Shakhtar players on the field show what we are working on in the classroom. Watching from the sidelines, I can say that the guys also get great pleasure from working with Paulo,” says the Serb.
“With many of the current players of Shakhtar I was in the same team. They are Darijo Srna, Vyacheslav Shevchuk, Oleksandr Kucher, Vasyl Kobin, Andriy Pyatov and others. I have a lot of friends and acquaintances. We have great respect to each other. All professionals, beyond in and nobody goes out”.
“I can just say that nothing does not come easy and one you win just because you’re not. Our team shows a very strong, competent football, they understand the requirements Fonseca, laid out on the field, and thus the result is reached. Shakhtar plays at a high level, I can freely say. And accept my words, the coaches of clubs with whom we have already met this season,” concluded the coach.
