Tymoshchuk hailed as Ukraine's best player

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Dec 20, 2011 11:20 pm

Anatoliy Tymoshchuk has been named the best footballer in the history of his home country Ukraine. The 32-year-old Bayern midfielder came top of a nationwide poll to determine the key individuals in the Ukrainian game since the nation's independence in 1991.

Over a two-month period, Ukrainian fans took part in a national survey entitled The Victory of Football, voting for their favourites in a variety of categories. Tymoshchuk came top of the poll for best player, beating the likes of Andriy Shevchenko, easily the best performer in the annual Ukraine Player of the Year awards with six victories in the last 20 years.

Most-capped international

Tymoshchuk has taken the Player of the Year accolade three times in total (2002, 2006, 2007). Earlier this year, the midfielder became his country's most-capped international, and now has 113 appearances to his name. As a Shakhtar Donetsk player, he won the Ukrainian league and cup on three occasions each.

Tymo's greatest European triumphs are winning the UEFA Cup with Zenit St. Petersburg in 2008, and contesting the Champions League final with Bayern two years later. The player joined Germany's biggest club in 2009 and was a member of the double-winning team in 2010.

Well to be honest Tymo is the best player Ukraine has at the moment. Schevchenko is way, WAY past his prime. And Tymo, despite being a tad inconsistent, is still of the calibre that he could feel comfortable in the latter stages of the Champions League.

But this is not an award for best current footballer but the best Ukrainian footballer in history!

Oh. I just lumped it together with Alaba's new victory. Well, this is really impressive then.
