Norwegian midfielder Mathias Normann stopped his participation in the “Dynamo” team. Moscow due to the Russian drone attack that took place on August 1. The Norwegian publication Nettavisen writes about it.

Starting from 2019, Mathias Normann, a Norwegian midfielder, participated in the Russian championship for the “Rostov” team. In the 2021/22 season, he played on loan at the English club Norwich. After the end of the lease, which coincided with the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine, he returned back to his native country.

In the summer of 2022, the Moscow “Dynamo” rented this midfielder. This summer, Normann's lawyers sent letters to Russian clubs, informing them of his decision to terminate his contract due to “growing fear” caused by Russia's war against Ukraine. 

According to Norwegian media, the reason for Mathias' decision to leave Russia was the attack drones to Moscow, which took place not far from the football player's residence.

In turn, “Rostov” and “Dynamo”, who still have the rights to Normann, announced their intention to file a lawsuit against him. According to the contract, the player was obliged to play for the Russian club until 2025.
