"Днепр-1" подписал опытного полузащитника

SC “Dnepr-1” is preparing to debut in the Premier League. The squad is strengthened for participation in the first season.

Before that “Dnepr-1” has leased two world Champions among teams U-20 – Sergey and Vladislav Buliza Spragu of “Dynamo”. Now the team has added midfielder Alexander Kobakhidze.

“Next season we will have one of the youngest teams in the Premier League! And in General: with some exceptionally young players, it is impossible to expect great success. So we decided to achieve a balance in all lines. For example, forwards: there are experienced, high, power plan Kulish and young Supryaga with Kozhushok. Or reference area: there are experienced Kravchenko and young Batagov. Or take the winger: the 18-year-old Nazarenko and now have a masters Kobakhidze,” said head coach of “Dnepr-1” Dmitry Mikhaylenko in comments to the website of the Premier League .

The last club Kobakhidze was Poltava “Vorskla”. Last season he played in 19 matches in Poltava (16 of them – in the start). In Ukraine, he also played in “Dnipro”. But nine years (2007 to 2016) for the team spent a total of 8 matches. The rest of the time spent in rent – “Krivbass” (2009 – 2010), Arsenal (2011 – 2013) and Volyn (2014 – 2016).
