Ex-Roma boss Paulo Fonseca stuck in Ukraine

Former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca is one of the millions of people affected by the on-going armed conflict in Ukraine.

The technician and his family are stuck in Kiev amid a barrage of explosions preventing them and others from leaving the Ukrainian capital.

The ex-Roma coach spoke to Mais Futbol and detailed his account of the latest events surrounding him.

“I woke up at five in the morning and heard five explosions in a row. I had a flight scheduled for today, but now it’s impossible to leave because the airport is already destroyed and the airspace has been closed.”

“This is the worst day of my life,” Fonseca said. “Now it’s time to wait and hope to be lucky. And pray that a bomb doesn’t fall on us.”
