The Ukrainian Football Federation has decided to erase from history and revoke the coaching license of Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, the player with the most caps for the national team. In question, the silence of the deputy of the Zenith on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as ex-colleague had already pointed.

In a press release, the Ethics and Fair Play Commission of the Federation specifies that the decision is based on the silence of the former international.

Born on March 30, 1979, Tymoschuk “is the Ukraine national team record holder in terms of the number of matches played” for the national team. “He was champion of Ukraine, Germany, Russia, winner of the UEFA Champions League, winner of the European Super Cup and in 2009-2013 and 2015-2017 he played for the Russian club FC Zenit (St. the committee.

“Since the beginning of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, Tymoschuk, the former captain of the Ukrainian national team, not only did not make public statements in this regard, but also did not no longer ceased cooperation with the club of the aggressor country. At a time when another former Ukrainian club, Bayern Munich, publishes statements and carries out actions in favor of Ukraine, Tymoschuk remains silent and works for the club of the country. By making this conscious choice, Tymoschuk harms the image of Ukrainian football and violates clause 1.4 Part 1 of article 4 of the UAF Code of Ethics and Fair Play.

Faced with the lack of action by the former player, the federation then decided to “deprive Tymoschuk of the Pro level coaching license issued by the UAF Licensing Center; order the UAF administration to request public authorities to withdraw from Tymoschuk all state awards and honorary diplomas; to deprive Tymoschuk of all titles of winner and winner of the silver prize of the Ukrainian Championship, the Ukrainian Cup and the Ukrainian Super Cup; exclude Tymoschuk from the official register of players of national teams of the UAF”.
