Miya Farouk’s long awaited debut in the Ukrainian Premier League has been postponed following the current situation of instability in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian Premier League has officially been suspended for a minimum of 30 days after the introduction of martial law by Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The imposition of martial law follows Russia’s launch of a military attack on Ukraine on Thursday, having previously recognised the independence of two breakaway regions in the east of the country.
“Due to the imposition of martial law in Ukraine, the championship of Ukraine has been suspended,” read a short statement on the league’s website.
The league was meant to restart this Friday 25th February following its winter break since last year.
Miya, who recently joined PFK Lviv, was meant to make his debut on Saturday 26th February against FK Oleksandria.
The Uganda Cranes offensive midfielder signed a short term contract till the end of the season and was handed shirt number 10 on arrival.
Miya spent the winter break period training with the team in a camp held in Turkey after he had officially parted ways with Turkish Super Lig side Konyaspor Kulübü.
While the Ukrainian League remains in doubt, Lviv are currently 12th on the table of 16 teams with 17 points.
Lviv is Miya’s sixth club in Europe since leaving Vipers in 2016. Others previously are Standard Liege and Royal Mouscron in Belgium, Azerbaijan’s FK Sebail, HNK Gorica of Croatia and recently Konyaspor.
