(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 08 – “There is nothing I can say to the Ukrainian people. They are showing how united and courageous they are. We all want happiness and peace for those people. Yesterday we also saw Ukrainian children smiling, and that’s what we want to see “, said Josè Mourinho after the match with Shakhtar on the channels of the Donetsk club, breaking his ‘press blackout’ for a just cause.
“We must consider this match from two perspectives: one is football and for us playing against a good team is important – continued the Special One -. Then there is the human side: obviously I think that everyone at the stadium was united in support for a country going through a difficult time “. Then he concluded: “Football can show human feelings and what we saw here at the Olimpico is important.” (HANDLE).
