Written By Jacobs Dunga

No member of Russia’s national team has spoken of the incident since it began thereby causing Mykolenko to launch an attack on the players.

More Details

The football world has been United against Russia and is standing in solidarity with Ukraine following the invasion of the European state by its neighbour Russia.


The attack which started last Thursday has taken the lives of 352 civilians including fourteen children according to Ukrainian authorities’ calculations as at Tuesday afternoon.

Mykolenko along with Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko witnessed a massive backing from their clubs Everton and Manchester City just before their Premier League game on Saturday, a gesture that left both players with tears as their emotions got the better of them.

The 22 year old fullback has since launched a diatribe against Russian national team captain and the squad on Instagram as a whole for their silence since the situation began.

“Whilst you remain a silent b**** along with your s***head football teammates, peaceful civilians are being killed in Ukraine,” Mykolenko wrote.

“You will be locked in a prison for the rest of your life and most importantly the lives of your kids. And I’m glad.”

Russia have seen their national team kicked out of this month’s World Cup playoffs by FIFA with UEFA suspending the participation of its teams in European competitions.

Numerous sports icons including the Dynamo Kiev football team have taken the decision to defend their country against Russian invasion with two footballers already reported dead in the battle.


We could be seeing another tirade from Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte as yet again he watched haplessly as his team were downed by Championship side Middlesbrough FC in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Premier League club is the second top tier side that Boro have knocked out of this year’s tournament after seeing off Manchester United in the previous round via penalties.

An extra time goal from teenager Josh Coburn was all Chris Wilder’s men needed to advance to the quarter finals of the oldest club competition in the world.

Conte will definitely not take this from his players who had several opportunities to kill off the game one of which was Harry Kane’s disallowed goal in the second half.

Chris Wilder and his men will now wait for the remaining matches of the round to be completed before knowing who their next opponents would be.
