Dynamo centre-back Ivan Ordets shared his emotions of a contract signing with our club. The Ukrainian defender will stay at Dynamo until the end of the 2023/24 season with the option for a further year.
— I was very happy when the club offered me to extend the contract. Of course, I wanted to stay here. I like everything at Dynamo — we have great fans, a nice stadium, a training ground, a high-quality team and a great coaching staff. We are competing for the highest places for the first time since I have been here. And, in this regard, I am overflowed with nice feelings from staying at this wonderful club.
I didn't have any special conversation with Sandro Schwarz about my contract extension. But he told several times that he wanted me to stay, and an appropriate offer would be made to me. It's great that everything turned out like that.
I am eager to win the title with Dynamo. And we have everything for it. This season we looked solid during the first round. I would give a good mark to our performance throughout this stint. But the whole competition is still ahead. This year we have to play three more matches. We want to win them, make our fans happy and go on a winter break in a great mood.
