Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko in emotions after the match: I'm not ready for 100%

West Ham was better in today's match against Aston Villa, and in the end, they deservedly won 2-1. One of those who played a good match was the Ukrainian, Andriy Yarmolenko, who also scored the first goal. Yarmolenko was quite emotional after the goal, and the biggest reason for that is the difficult situation in his country, which is currently at war.

He had something to say after the match, and it is clear that it is not easy for him in this situation "It was so emotional for me because of the situation in my country," he told Sky Sports. "It is so difficult for me right now in this moment thinking about football because every day, the Russian army is killing Ukrainian people.

"It was so emotional. To be honest, I don’t know what to say. "I just want to say thank you to my team-mates, who support me all the time, every day. "To West Ham fans, they also support me and Ukrainian people and also to all British people, because we feel you support us.

Thank you, really.

Andriy Yarmolenko on the football and fans

It is quite reasonable that Yarmolenko cannot be 100% focused on football at the moment, but it seems that he is still trying to stay focused on football and help his team.

That is exactly what he showed today. He is grateful for the support provided by his fans "I felt the support from the fans and I tried to give everything on the pitch because I know how important the game was for us today.

"I'm not ready for 100% because the last two weeks I train maybe three or four times. "Since 26 February, I had to rest for four days because it was impossible to train, I was just thinking about my family and my people. "I just tried to give everything on the pitch."
