– For me and the entire football community, it is very important that the impossible not exist, – Oleksey admitted the first words after receiving the award at the Salle Pleyel concert hall in Paris.
The 35-year-old from Noa Seoul had a serious accident in 2010. During road works, he was hit by a passenger car, and at the hospital it was found that the injuries were very serious and it was necessary to amputate his leg. He was in a wheelchair for two years. Prior to this event, he was the goalkeeper for Korona Kożuchów, playing in the Lubuskie Fourth League. However, it took him nine years to return to the field in a slightly different role.
