World Class Player
Lemberg - The Galician Capital!
Teams: Karpaty & Arsenal
Though we'd have a thread about this promising striker... In a reply to the post in the Shakhtar thread whether he's the youngest player to top the league top scorers chart, Yes he is!
1992 - Yuriy Hudymenko (Tavria) - 12 goals at the age of 26
1993 - Sehiy Husyev (Chornomorets) - 17 goals at the age of 26
1994 - Timerlan Husyeynov (Chornomorets) - 18 goals at the age of 25
1995 - Arsen Avakov (Torpedo Z) - 21 goals at the age of 24 (Tajikistan)
1996 - Timerlan Husyeynov (Chornomorets) - 20 goals at the age of 27
1997 - Oleh Matveev (Shakhtar) - 21 goals at the age of 27
1998 - Serhiy Rebrov (Dynamo) - 22 goals at the age of 24
1999 - Andriy Shevchenko (Dynamo) - 18 goals at the age of 23
2000 - Maxim Shatskikh (Dynamo) - 20 goals at the age of 22 (Uzbekistan)
2001 - Andriy Vorobei (Shakhtar) - 21 goals at the age of 23
2002 - Serhiy Shyschenko (Metalurh D) - 12 goals at the age of 26
2003 - Maxim Shatskikh (Dynamo) - 22 goals at the age of 25 (Uzbekistan)
2004 - Georgi Demetradze (Dynamo) - 18 goals at the age of 28 (Georgia)
2005 - Olexandr Kosyrin (Chornomorets) - 14 goals at the age of 28
2006 - Brandao/Okoduwa (Shakhtar/Arsenal) - 15 goals scored at the age of 26/23 (Brazil/Nigeria)
2007 - Olexandr Hladkyi (FC Kharkiv) - 12 goals at the age of 19
Shevchenko scored 16 and came 2nd in 1996 at the age of 20... At the age of 19 Sheva only scored once in 17 league matches.
So yeah, Hladkyi in this aspect is a record breaker...
P.S. There might be some differences in ages since some of the players were born after May/June and so technically were one year younger than i specified, but it doesnt affect the overall picture that Hladkyi is the UPL youngest ever top scorer...
