Man City star Zinchenko breaks down in tears on FaceTime to wife Vlada Shcheglova after she gives birth

OLEKS ZINCHENKO is poised to begin Manchester City's season with his morale sky high – after becoming a dad for the first time.

The Ukraine international's wife Vlada Sedan gave birth to a baby girl in a Miami hospital on Sunday.




Delighted wing-back Zinchenko posted a picture of Vlada and the new arrival on social media.

The 24-year-old wrote: "Dear, thank you!  Vlada Sedan, you are my life!  08/01/2021."

The couple married last August – but Zinchenko broke off from his wedding issue a statement on his wife's behalf apologising for her reaction to a 3-1 defeat to Lyon in 2020.

The baby's arrival caps off a triumphant 12 months for Zinchenko, who joined City in 2016.

He helped Pep Guardiola's side win the Premier League and Carabao Cup, and reach the Champions League final.

The 44-cap international also shone in Ukraine's Euro 2020 campaign before their 4-0 quarter-final loss to England last month.

Zinchenko returned to action for City on Saturday, coming on as a sub in a 4-0 friendly win over Barnsley.

He has made 100 appearances, scoring two goals, since swapping Russian club Ufa for the Etihad in a £1.7million deal.

Zinchenko proposed to Sedan inside the 70,000-capacity Olympic Stadium in Kiev in front of a heart-shaped display of red roses.

There were rumours the pair were dating after he planted a kiss on her face on live TV following Ukraine's 5-0 win over Serbia back in 2019.
