Chygrynskiy: Playing against Barca odd

Topics

MADRID - Shakhtar Donetsk defender Dymytro Chygrynskiy found it strange playing against Barcelona in Friday's European Super Cup knowing that he will probably seal a move to the Catalan club in the next few days.

"It was odd playing against a team you know that in a few days will be your team but as soon as the whistle blew at the start I was fully focused," the centre back told reporters after Barca's 1-0 extra-time victory.

"I think I could come to Barcelona on Sunday for a medical and I hope it's all okay so I can sign the contract," he added. Spanish media have reported the deal is worth 25 million euros.
