Live together in Kiev for a month. Play games like “Counter-Strike”, “FIFA”. He wants me to teach him the Russian language (smiles). Watch movies, TV shows. “Paper the house” was released – popular series among the Dynamo, this is the best series.
I, like you, already miss football. Hope all is well. Tired of sitting at home and train for themselves. Hard without full training. We, the players, want to do on the field already.
