Ukrainian Soccer Player Answers Phone While Playing, Is Magnificent Multitasker


Some people are upset at this FC Olimpik Donetsk defender for conducting a little telephone business while playing soccer. Doesn’t he respect the game?

But not me. I, for one, applaud his ability to maximize his time.

You can clearly see he’s in control of the situation and his play doesn’t suffer. Plus, you know, it’s Ukrainian soccer so how serious could it really be?

Also, soccer is a fairly easy sport to sneak in some much needed phone time. Not as easy as baseball, of course, but not as difficult as football or basketball.

Most importantly, he secured much needed press for Ukranian soccer. I predict American interest in the league to explode after this viral video–nevermind.
