Description:

Viktor Kovalenko is a product of Shakhtar Donetsk – the club that brings players for a lot of money, but also doesn’t forget about its academy, which is among the best in Eastern Europe. Viktor came into spotlight in the UEFA Youth League 2013/2014, where he was one of the leaders of young “The Miners”, who have come out of a competitive group, leaving Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen behind, and in the last 16, after a tough fight, had to acknowledge the supremacy of Arsenal. He’s been one of the central figures of the Ukrainian national team in the recently finished 2014 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, despite the fact that he was a year younger than most of his teammates.
