Donetsk football club Shakhtar has become the champion of Ukraine in football for the tenth time, Interfax reports.
As to the report, within the 28th round, the Premier League leader defeated Luhansk Zaria in Kharkiv with a score of 3:2.
After this victory Shakhtar became even theoretically unattainable for Dynamo Kyiv, because even in case of success of the capital team in the reporting round, the gap between them for four rounds before the end of the championship will be 14 points.
Thus, Shakhtar has regained the title, which it had last won within 2014. Two previous seasons were the wins of Dynamo, which is a 15-fold champion of Ukraine.
It is to be admitted, this victory has become the first for Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca who became the head of the Donetsk team as of May 31, 2016, and the first championship he won in his coaching career.
