Ukrainian footballer George Chitaishvili has been criticized in Facebook from celebrating a goal scored in the style of Russia striker Artem Dzuba.
In the match of the youth European championship against the team of France, Chitaishvili opened the scoring in the meeting, and then saluted the stands.
“I don’t even know what to say about that… For Ukrainians, Tsitaishvili the standard of football — Dzyuba. Not Belgian [Kevin] de bruyne, not Croatian [Luka] Modric, not French [Kilian] Mbappe, who is only a year older, Tsitaishvili, and already a world champion and leader of the senior team. No. For Ukrainians, Tsitaishvili the film closer. Dearer. The sweeter,” wrote journalist Konstantin Andriyaka.
Tsitaishvili, responded to the criticism in Instagram: “you Can criticize, you can write that I’m bad. But personally, I don’t know what you need. Like would give anything to win, and you only have what to discuss-and create a buzz”.
The match ended with the victory of the Ukrainian team with the score 2:1.
