KIEV, December 23 (Itar-Tass) — The president of Ukrainian club Metalist Kharkiv, Alexander Yaroslavsky, has denied reports on the sale of his club.
“I’ve heard of this for the first time,” he told Ukraine’s TV channel Football on Sunday. “Every day some new information emerges. You see that practically everybody is in a nervous state from all this. Let’s rest a bit. The new year is coming,” he said.
The local media spread the information that Yaroslavsky agreed to sell Metalist Kharkiv to Sergei Kurchenko, a 27-year-old businessman and lawyer from Kharkov. It named Yaroslavsky’s conflict with the Kharkov city authorities over Metalist stadium as the main reason for the sale.
According to Ukraine’s newspapers, Yaroslavsky has already instructed to prepare financial appraisal of the club.
