I thank the family Surkis for the trust and made the invitation, but I can’t activated in the atmosphere of hostility, especially from the group of Ultras supporters, whose support is so needed by the team during the competition.
I’ve never been a coward, I took sports challenges, proof – transition from Galatasaray to Besiktas or Dinamo Bucharest to rapid Bucharest. But I was met with hope and confidence, with which we managed to win titles in their respective countries.
I can’t accept their fans acting against the interests of the club. I thought it was time for a change that would cause the emulation, enthusiasm, motivation and returned the team to the level that it was given the tradition and history of this club.
My visit to Dynamo Kiev has no relation to the cost of the contract, the money was my last concern.
I wanted to return to football in Ukraine, where I experienced great satisfaction, re-enter the atmosphere, so exciting and full of unpredictable football. I did it with enthusiasm, with full confidence in the potential of young Ukrainian players, many of whom are members of teams.
I wanted the competition, as it was many years ago. Ukraine deserves it.”, – said Lucescu edition GSP.
