Artem Fedetskiy urged the football Federation of Ukraine to cancel the naturalized players.
Currently, the national team of Ukraine are the two naturalized Brazilian from Shakhtar – Marlos joined the main team of the country in September 2017, and Junior Moraes received Ukrainian citizenship before the start of the selection at Euro 2020.
“Moraes received the passport, but a head coach he wouldn’t have gotten the call. Earlier, I spoke with Shevchenko at the expense Marlos. My opinion then and now remains unchanged. The team must play the Ukrainians. It is not necessary to naturalize.
The same Roman Zozulya. He was a Ukrainian. Well, put to play the Marlos. Yarmola injured, but Tsygankov sitting. Have him run a good European clubs and the national team, he sits. And play people from another country with a Ukrainian passport. This is wrong by far. Need to close this shop.
Is Ukraine team, not the club where you can do everything in their interests. We have a lot of cool youth, with which to work. The result? It is quite another question.
If you want the result, Yes, you can naturalize 11 players from other countries, but I believe it to be wrong. Ukraine has always been famous for
good players. But it is important to have patriotism. Only the Ukrainians understand what it means to play for their country”, – said Fedetskyy in an interview with “FootBoom”.
Artem Fedetskiy played in the national team of Ukraine from 2010 to 2016. For “blue-yellow” ex-defender of “Shakhtar” and “Dnepr” held 53 matches and scored 2 goals.
