Pessina’s story: “Malinovskyi and Miranchuk embraced in Zingonia. And we with them”

“It will be trivial to hear a footballer say no to war”. Thus begins the beautiful message that Matteo PessinaAtalanta midfielder, he wanted to entrust his profile Instagram: “It will be trivial to hear him say that war is wrong, always. But if it were really so banal we would not be here, in 2022, to reiterate it all together. I have been thinking about it for days but I cannot give myself an answer: how can this happen after the suffering experienced in the last two years? In our dressing room the two peoples involved in the war have the faces of Ruslan (MalinovskyiUkrainian, ed) and Aleksey (Miranchuk, Russian, ed). ‘Mali’ is an introverted boy, available and with a strong character. ‘Mira’ a simple boy, perhaps the best he knows, shy and with passions very similar to mine. The other day, while the madness of the war turned against Russia and Ukraine, they embraced in Zingonia. And we have clung to them and will continue to do so in this difficult time as a big family. This is football that unites what human madness tries to divide. Stop the war in Ukraine ”.
