Illia Zabarnyi: “I missed training sessions even during vacation”

FC Dynamo Kyiv defender Illia Zabarnyi has told about the traditional medical examination and shared his expectations of the upcoming training camp in Spain and the second part of the season.

- Happy holidays to everyone. I’m glad to be back. I missed my teammates and football. I think it’s time to get back to work. I missed training sessions even during vacation as I’ve got used to this rhythm.

- How did you keep fit not to get overweight?

- One should take care of himself. Before the vacation doctors gave us a list of exercises we had to do. We’re all professionals, so we did.

- Did you keep any diet?

- No, I was eating what I usually do on holidays. I’ll just have to work a bit harder later (smiling).

- Was the medical examination standard or maybe there were some procedures you didn’t like?

- Actually everything was fine. I’ve been having such examinations since the Academy times.

- The team will have three training camps which make a month and a half in total. Are you ready for that?

- I guess we are. We had similar experience with Euro-2020 as we had long training camp before the contest too. There will be short breaks between these training camps, so I think everything will be fine.

- What do you expect of Dynamo defense now that Mykolenko has left?

- I wish Vitaliy good luck. He’s shown what it takes to play in European top league. That’s very important for youngsters.

- Do Dynamo players study English?

- (smiling) All in good time. My English is pretty fine.
