The head coach of the female national team of Ukraine Natalia Zinchenko spoke about the situation in women’s football in the context of quarantine:
We look forward to the recovery of the training process, but it is difficult to say how many women’s teams will be able to proceed to grade work. The good news is that they all keep afloat.
– And how are your players for the national team of Ukraine?
– According to the quarantine requirements they all worked individually. I and my assistants are often in contact with them, and most importantly, that all the girls are healthy. It is hoped that the onset of the epidemic will be stopped, and September 22, my players will play the next calendar match of the championship Europe – with chernogorii.
– At the March meeting of the Executive Committee of the UAF was adopted a strategic plan for the development of women’s football, which provides for the mandatory presence of women’s teams in the clubs of the Premier League.
– This is a truly historic decision. You know, in my opinion, one of the biggest factors to the rapid progress of women’s football in Europe is the fact that the leading FC took under his wing and women’s teams. We are talking about clubs Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, PSG, Lyon, Bayern, Wolfsburg, Fiorentina, Chelsea, Manchester city.
Among the Ukrainian elite clubs of a representative in the women’s football have only Karpaty. Convinced that since the March decision of Executive Committee of the UAF experience soon the Lviv team will take on Board and other domestic FC. This will promote women’s football and strengthen its financial bases.
