Russian mixed martial artist (MMA) Khabib Nurmagomedov addressed the Ukrainian defender of Manchester City Alexander Zinchenko on his Instagram.

He supported the football player, who was harassed because of a joint photo with him. “I wish you good luck in everything, even if someone doesn’t like it,” Nurmagomedov wrote, posting another picture with Zinchenko.

Earlier on Wednesday, October 6, a football player of the national team of Ukraine posted several pictures with a Russian fighter on his Instagram. In the photo, athletes are hugging, and Zinchenko accompanied the publication with compliments to the Russian.

Users in the comments staged harassment of the player. Some did not like that Zinchenko publishes photos in the company with a Russian citizen. The athlete was also predicted problems at home.
