Palkin (CEO Shakhtar): “A very positive draw for us.”


Shakhtar Donetsk CEO Sergei Palkin commented on his side’s Champions League knockout stages draw against Roma. These are his words:

“It’s a very positive draw for us, we have avoided clubs like Barcelona or PSG, Roma will want to take revenge after we eliminated them in 2011. There are many good players to worry about, from Alisson to Dzeko, but the one I fear the most is Nainggolan. We will give our maximum but we will take things as they come, we are coming from a very tough group with City and Napoli.”
