(ANSA) – ROME, AUG 25 – For many, indeed all (the total is 13), Brazilians who have left Shaktar Donetsk for fear of war, after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, there is one that goes the opposite way. This is the defender Lucas Taylor, who was in Greece at Paok but did not think twice as soon as he received the offer of the Ukrainian team that, again this year, will play the Champions League. “I’ve always wanted to play in this competition – explained Taylor – and I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by.
On top of that, Shakhtar was directly admitted to the group stage, so what would I have to wait for? My family has understood even though, logically, they are worried. But they understood my motivations, for me this is a great opportunity “.
