Oleksandr Zinchenko: How setbacks and sacrifice propelled Manchester City's left-back from a small town in Ukraine to the top of the Premier League

Posted 8/15/2019

"Oleksandr Zinchenko’s journey from the humble beginnings of his local football academy to the summit of English football has been far from straightforward.

From day one, things have never really transpired as the Ukrainian might have expected.

The boys at his local football academy didn’t pass to him, for a start, and his first steps in the senior game were delayed by 18 months after a contract dispute between two clubs.

He didn’t play as often as he would have liked during a loan spell at PSV Eindhoven, either, and you would guess he might not have expected to play left-back in Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering Manchester City team." (ManCity.com)
