Footballer, who had fun in Russia during the war, wanted to return to the Ukrainian national team
Dynamo Moscow's Ukrainian defender Ivan Ordets, who is on loan at German side Bochum, wants to play for the Yellow and Blues again. The 30-year-old last played for the Ukrainian national team in March 2018.
In 2019, he moved from Shakhtar to Dynamo Moscow, after which he stopped being called up to the national team. After that, he was not called up to the national team.
"Of course, I'm ready, I can play in the national team. I want to, of course. But I can't call myself up there. It depends on the head coach. If he deems it necessary to call me up, he will," Ordets said in an interview with Inter journalist Roman Kademin on THE GAME YouTube channel.
Earlier, Ordets admitted to Kademin that it was very difficult for him to stay in Russia after the start of the full-scale invasion.
It is worth noting that at the end of May last year, at the end of the Dynamo season, Moscow organised a festive corporate party, where Ivan was present.
The footballer was dancing with his teammates, laughing and celebrating his 9th place in the Russian Premier League.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ordets left the Russian club only in the fifth month of the full-scale war and moved to the German championship.
Ivan Ordets joined the Moscow team from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2019 and signed a five-year contract.
