Results of the club season for the legionnaires of the national team of Ukraine: Alexander Zinchenko

Probably, so far the club season-2018/2019 for the midfielder of the national team of Ukraine Oleksandr Zinchenko in their squad is the most successful career. Especially the second part of it.

Granted, not every player at all in one season can not only win three trophies in English football at once, but also become a direct participant in a real fierce fight for them. Alexander succeeded.

The only thing that won't allow Zinchenko to call last season perfect is another quarterfinal failure for Manchester City in the Champions League. It is most unfortunate that at the decisive moment of the tournament, when Josep Guardiola's team had to play away with Tottenham, due to Zinchenko's injury, he was inaccessible to the Spanish specialist. Without the Ukrainians, they were conceded (0: 1) by the townspeople, and in the match-answer (also in the absence of Alexander) they were unable to win with the necessary score (3: 2).

However, returning to the personal agility of the Ukrainian, who is used by Guardiola as a left-back, we will note Sashko's debut goal in the Manchester City jersey and five assists. Previously, Zinchenko had no effective action in the English club.

It is symbolic that Alexander made his first effective performance at ManCity (goalkeeper) on November 7, 2018 in the Champions League match against Ukrainian Shakhtar, in the system of which he made his first steps in adult football.

Prospects for the season 2019/2020

Now it is difficult to say what role will play Josef Guardiola Ukrainian in the next season.

On the one hand, Zinchenko's direct competitor for a spot on the left side of Manchester City's defense, Benjamin Mendy, for whom much money was paid, has recovered from his injury and is confident he wants to oust Alexander from the main squad.

On the other - there is a brilliant second part of the 2018-2019 season and a new five-year contract for the Ukrainian national football team with the English club. We hope it will outweigh the latter.
