Ukrainian football player and Manchester City left back Oleksandr Zinchenko commented on Man City's win in Carabao Cup semifinal, scoring 9-0 against Burton FC. This was reported by BBC news agency.

"It's the first time I've played in a win like this. To be fair we scored a lot of goals, we wanted more, and our fans did too,” Zinchenko said.

"We wished we could get 10, maybe next time. Was my goal a cross?! A little respect please...At half time Pep [Guardiola] said 'keep going in the same way, the same spirit and if we can score more'," he added.

As it was reported earlier, Manchester City FC accepted the offer made by Wolverhampton, which is eager to buy the Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko. The Citizens agreed to sell him for 16 million pounds.

While the deal apparently suits Man City, the 21-year-old native of Zhytomyr region, northern Ukraine, clearly wants to stay. Zinchenko plans to keep training with Josep Guardiola's team, even though he does not have enough game practice for now.

Last spring, Manchester City became champions in the FA Premier League, with Zinchenko contributing to their victory. He earned a praise from the head coach, who at least once described him as 'outstanding'.  

Oleksandr Zinchenko, the midfielder of Ukraine's national team, signed the deal with Man City in summer 2017. He debuted in December 2017, gradually gaining his place on the pitch - as well as the attention of the local press.
