"We're here to express our indignation concerning the events that our team-mate Roman Zozulya has been subjected to. Everything stemmed from a false news story upon his arrival in Seville and we feel that the subsequent situation is extremely grave and something that potentially could affect all of us in the future. We are aware that AFE (The players union) are investigating the matter to ensure that he can work in normal circumstances and we hope other implicated bodies take the necessary measures. We all. including the media should reflect on how simple it is to cause such harm so easily. We are Zozulya".
