Spartak Moscow striker Luiz Adriano said that he had not expressed the desire to play for the national team of Ukraine and shared his opinion about Shakhtar Donetsk.
– When you were a miner, even before the first call to the national team of Brazil said that gladly would have played for the national team of Ukraine. Then something failed. Why?
– Actually all was not so. Me the journalist asked – exactly the same as you now, I’d like to play for the Ukrainian national team. I said, “No problem.” But what I want to play for Ukraine, – was not.
And the fans said that Luiz Adriano should fall at his feet and pray that he began to play for the national team of Ukraine.
– I am pleased that said. But you see, as a result, Ukraine has not played.
Look at the miner left a piece of your soul. Much worried about what is happening with the club?
– It’s a pity that the miner is unable to play home matches at their home stadium. The atmosphere in the arena gave the team extra strength.
I follow a miner, and maintain relationships with some Brazilians, remained the fans of the Donetsk club. But, despite the fact that the team is not in his field, it still plays beautifully – even in the Champions League – said Adriano in an interview with Sport-Express.
Earlier it was reported that Eugene Seleznev has wished good luck to national team of Ukraine.
