And it’s much more than points, goals and seconds. It’s a shame, he struggled for many years with a serious illness. We, all his students and pupils, helped him as best we could and supported him. He lived in Ukraine, we met several years ago in a border cafe. He arrived in a wheelchair, we sat and talked about our memories.
