Winger Yarmolenko ranked second best among prospective stars in Champions League play-offs

The English edition of World Soccer, which is one of the most influential media in the world of soccer, has compiled a list of the six best players who can stand out in the playoff stage of UEFA Champions League this year.

The press-service of FC Dynamo Kyiv reports the second placed in the featured star list is the side’s winger Andriy Yarmolenko.

World Soccer ha described the Ukrainian player: "Although a greedy for goals winger (or the second striker) still some way to tread to become one placed in the Dynamo club hall of fame along with such legends as Oleh Blokhin, Viktor Kolotov, Anatoliy Demyanenko and Andriy Shevchenko, he is definitely moving in the right direction. If Kyiv hopes to beat Manchester City, it is this 26-year-old Yarmolenko who may put pressure on the defense orders of "citizens" which tend to periodically "fail." This mission is quite within Yarmolenko’s reach who has the ability to play using his both feet with a stunning change of rhythm! His contract with Dynamo Kyiv expires in 2020, but it is possible he may be transferred to one of the clubs in Western Europe."

Recall that on February 24 Dynamo Kyiv entertain English side Manchester City at home turf in the first leg of the Champions League 1/8 finals.
