Raphael Varane shares a message of solidarity with Ukraine

Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has shown his support for Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion.

The whole world is appalled with the situation in Ukraine.

In a show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, our defender took to his Instagram account to illustrate his anti-war view.

Varane joined United in the summer and already looks our best defender, though that wasn’t too hard.

The 28-year-old has shared a message of solidarity with Ukraine, after the United players displayed a banner calling for ‘peace’ before drawing 0-0 with Watford on Saturday in the Premier League.

Varane uploaded a picture of players from both sides with the Ukraine ‘peace’ banner, with the following caption: “Bigger than football.”
