Description:

Oleksandr Zinchenko was brought up at Shakhtar Donetsk and is regarded as one of the most talented players in Ukraine at the moment.

Currently he is a member of the Shakhtar youth team and is playing in the UEFA Youth League. Despite his young age, Oleksandr is its captain and its leader. He scored 1 goal and made 1 assists in 6 games and it is also thanks to him that “The Miners” advanced to the next stage, leaving Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen behind.
