Former Lviv head coach Oleh Dulub is impressed by the form of Shakhtar central defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy, who, at 33, demonstrates a high level of play.
“Jaroslav can send the ball with a very accurate pass to almost anywhere on the field. It is very difficult for opponents to adjust their defense to Rakitskiy. It is difficult to neutralize him with the help of personal guardianship, because go and find an attacker who will run after him the whole match. A powerful long-range strike also causes a lot of inconvenience and problems for opponents.
It should be noted that the speed with which Yaroslav makes decisions does not decrease with age. I think with a high degree of probability this summer he will have offers from a stronger championship,” Dulub said.
This season, he played 12 matches in the Pitmen’s jersey, scoring two goals and making three assists. His contract with Shakhtar runs until the summer, but has the option of extending for another season.
