🟑 City's Oleksandr Zinchenko offers serious response to death threats after mistake against Germany

Ukraine and Manchester City defender was the subject of the dark side of the game as his life and family faced death threats.

Zinchenko lost possession to help Germany open the scoring as Ukraine went on to lose the UEFA Nations League game 3-1 last weekend.

The result left the East European side in a relegation battle to avoid dropping from Group A to Group B of the Nations League.

"Reading all the dirt that poured on me and my family after yesterday's game, once again convinced what kind of people we have and how they can support," Zinchenko wrote on his official Instagram account.

"Fortunately or unfortunately, the demand is already such that it is no longer permissible to make mistakes on someone else's half of the field. For losing the ball on someone else's half of the field, I repeat, people wish you and your family death.

"Feeling responsible for the defeat, I turn to adequate fans, which we, unfortunately, have little left. The final is waiting for all of us with you, be with the team,” he added.
