Ex-Roma Boss, Paulo Fonseca, Ukraine, Bomb

Paulo Fonseca has opened up on ‘the worst day of his life’ with the former Roma boss and his family stranded in Ukraine.

The Portuguese coach was in Kyiv with his Ukrainian wife Katerina Ostroushko and their young son, when Russian troops invaded the country.

Officials in Ukraine have claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has “launched a full-scale invasion” with attacks reported across the country.

Fonseca, who managed Shakhtar Donetsk between 2016 and 2019 had hoped to return to Portugal via an early-morning flight, only for all flights to be grounded with the 48-year-old claiming airports have been destroyed.

Martial law has already been declared in Ukraine with many in the country’s capital attempting to leave the city.

“I woke up at five in the morning with five explosions in a row,” Fonseca told Jornal de Noticias.

“I had a flight scheduled for today, but now it is impossible to leave here, not least because the airports are already destroyed and the airspace has been closed.

“This is the worst day of my life. Now it’s time to wait and be lucky. And pray that a bomb doesn’t fall on us.”

Katerina had a child with Fonseca in 2019 and issued an emotional message saying ‘the children of Ukraine do not deserve the war’.

“Worst morning ever. Pain. Anger, anger, anger and pain,” Katerina wrote on her Instagram account. “My little son didn’t deserve the war. The children of Ukraine did not deserve the war.”
