Media: Shakhtar punished the Ukrainian national team goalkeeper who wanted to leave the team early
Shakhtar has excluded their goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin from the starting line-up for the UPL match due to his refusal to extend his contract with the club and his desire to move to Inter Milan, calciomercato.com reports. According to media reports, Patrick van Leeuwen has put Dmytro Riznyk for the match of the 2nd round against Veres. However, this is more than just a technical choice by the Dutch coach. It is a punitive decision made by the Ukrainian club.
Italian journalists suspect that in this way the 22-year-old footballer decided to punish for the refusal to extend the contract expiring in June 2024 and the agreement with Inter on a free transfer next summer as a free agent.
In the first round of the Premier League, in which Shakhtar beat Metalist 1925 2-1, Trubin missed due to disqualification. However, the Ukrainian goalkeeper did not appear on the pitch in the 2nd round either.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the Nerazzurri were ready to sign Trubin Nerazzurri, but not at the price requested by Shakhtar. The Italians expected to give 10 million euros, but the Donetsk club demanded 15 million euros and performance bonuses.
It should be noted that Riznyk played poorly in the match of the 2nd round against Veres, conceding a rather ridiculous goal. The meeting itself ended in a sensational 1:1 draw.
