Vyacheslav Grozny, "It's too soon to resume the championship. Now we have to save the country!"
The Head Coach of "Goverla" Vyacheslav Grozny commented on the suspension of the matches of the Premier League of Ukraine due to the unstable situation in the country. The coach of Uzhgorod football team called the public not to rush and wait for complete stabilization.
- In my opinion, safety and human life is above all. Of course, as a coach, I also want the championship to be resumed soon, and I understand the calls of some coaches. Yes, they say the FIFA demands the completion of all the championships by May 31, but we have force majeure events in our country. We can finish the championship in June and then start a new season in August. There are no obstacles to that, and March matches can be played in the summer.
To me, now, no one can guarantee security at the stadiums. So, I want people, who make decisions, to think about the lives that are a thousand times more important than football. Such decisions should be taken with a cool head, and I think it's still early to hold Round 21.
It would be better to wait a bit more until the situation stabilizes, and then to play in piece. Although I understand coaches and players, who already want to resume the championship, so we will accept any decision of the federation and the UPL. But the most important thing is to hear each other. And I really do not want to put football and people's lives on scales. So there is nothing wrong if the championship will be postponed for one more week. Now it is more important to consolidate our society, so that people would argue about languages and would not tear our country apart", - the "Chempionat.com" quoted Grozny.
