"Died in the war". Lucescu spoke about the difficult situation at Dynamo
Head coach of Dynamo Kyiv Mircea Lucescu gave a press conference on the eve of the return match of the 3rd qualifying round of the Conference League against Greek Aris. According to the Romanian coach, it is very difficult for the team to play with empty stands and without fans.
Lucescu admitted that it is difficult to start the game when before the starting whistle there is always a minute's silence in memory of the victims.
"Just before leaving for Thessaloniki, which took 23 hours by train, bus, plane, one of our players asked to go home to bury his brother who died in the war. The family was left without a breadwinner and two children without a father. It's very difficult. And we demand dedication from him," Mircea Mihajlovic is quoted by the Dynamo press service.
Recall that the first match in Thessaloniki ended with the victory of the hosts. The only goal was scored after a scandalous penalty, which the Australian referee awarded for playing with Sirota's face in another team's penalty box.
