His career as a player Oleh Blokhin has done in Cyprus “ARIS”, which appeared in 1989-1990.
Former partner Blokhin for “ARIS” Zoran Samardzija shared memories of performances with the legend “Dynamo”:
“I saw the matches, Oleh Blokhin’s Dynamo against Bayern, when he was a little boy. Then he was the best player in Europe and my idol. I also played with number 11 on the back.
In ARIS, we were trained to Andreas Michalidis – one of the best coaches in my career. The first game of Blokhin in Cyprus, the coach calls the starting lineup and says that Oleg will play under number 9. Oleg takes a t-shirt with No. 9, gives it to the coach with the words: “Now you can play it, but I won’t.”
Then the coach said that was just kidding: “Oleg, your No. 11 and No. 9 will take Zoran”. I will never forget this moment – the whole locker room laughed. It was really fun. Blokhin was a strong character.”
