2 min read

Ilkay Gundogan has penned a message to the people of Ukraine and Ukrainians around the world, amid the ongoing military invasion being carried out by Russia in the country.

As celebrities and the general public unite in favor of those directly affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a number of sportsmen have gone to social media to express their solidarity.

Among them are Manchester City players who are expressing their support not only for the people of Ukraine, but also for their Ukrainian international and club teammate Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Manchester City’s vice-captain, Ilkay Gundogan, is the latest member of the squad to issue a comment, posting his thoughts on the matter to his Instagram account on Thursday night.

Writing on social media, Gundogan stated, “A dark day for world peace.”

There are no winners in war. I hope this will end soon.”

My thoughts are with all innocent people involved. Please stay safe,” the Manchester City midfielder closed, penning his message alongside a distressing image of a woman with two children by her side draped in Ukrainian flags.

Gundogan follows Manchester City captain Fernandinho, who recently published a short video message on his official Instagram account, simply stating, “Ukrainian people, I am with you.”

Oleksandr Zinchenko has been the most vocal within the Manchester City set-up, and attended a vigil in the city centre on Thursday evening, protesting against the invasion of his home country.

Ahead of the next round of Premier League fixtures this weekend, the Football Association have reportedly given the green light to Ukrainian flags being displayed at matches, in support of those affected by the crisis in Ukraine.
