Sports functionary Yuriy Sapronov spoke about his communication with the former striker and head coach of the Ukrainian national football team Andriy Shevchenko.
“We are friends and respect each other. In the first months of the war, there was not a day that he did not call me. And sometimes twice. He is the right person, despite the fact that he has both a core and a character, he is quite sincere when talking with friends. I talked a lot with Andrey.
With the outbreak of the war, he collects a huge amount of money: both on the United24 platform, and in Italy, and in Britain, where he played and now lives. He comes very often. During the war, we did not see each other many times, probably three times. Andrey is a lump and does a lot for Ukraine now. We are talking about tens of millions of dollars,” Sapronov said.
