Shakhtar Donetsk general director Sergei Palkin commented on the transition of 18-year-old Ukrainian defender Mark Mampassi to the club from the Russian championship.
According to Palkin, the sale of the young Ukrainian to Lokomotiv Moscow is a message to the rest of the Shakhtar Donetsk academy students.
“It seems to me that this is a message to all the players of the Academy. We are not a golden cage, and if there are normal proposals, then they will have a chance to try themselves in other championships.
If suddenly there is no opportunity to get into the first team, we give ourselves a try in other clubs. From the point of view of the Academy’s work, this is a serious step forward “, – quotes the words of Palkin Shakhtar Press Service.
