Besides the tremendous transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid also slow to materialize, here is one of the serials of the transfer window. A series of unexpected addition, since the decision of the wealthy Suleiman Kerimov not to inject millions into his club Anzhi Makhachakala has surprised many.
Where is Samuel Eto’o going to play this season? The question is on the lips for three weeks. The captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon is asked to find a new home base to lighten the payroll of the club of Dagestan. With his arrival at Anzhi a year ago and a half, the former Barcelona became the highest paid player in the world, receiving 20 million Euros per year. An astronomical sum that does not really having impact on the sporting results of the club.
Two coaches fired in four games!
Anzhi Makhachkala wanted to build a team capable of competing with the best in the Russian championship (Zenit, Lokomotiv, Spartak and CSKA) and has invested for that. Except that since thze club dear to Kerimov (image at right) still has not won anything. The Champions League that was the first goal did not come, the club failing even from the group stage of the Europa League last season. http://en.africatopsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Suleiman-Kerimov-300×159.jpg
Despite new investment this season, including the recruitment of the Congolese Christopher Samba for almost 15 million has brought nothing. Worse the club no more wins. One draw in five meetings and two coaches already fired.
This led Kerimov to adopt a new development strategy for the club. Promote the training center to make the pool of the first team. It is therefore necessary to degrease the current workforce. The operation started last few days and is progressing very well. Denisov, Shirokov and Kokorin found refuge in Zenit, Boussoufa and Lass Diarra flied through Lokomotiv and the Brazilian Willian is poised to engage with Tottenham. In fact everyone leaves the ship.
Inter, Chelsea, Manchester United, Los Angeles, ‘Sammy’ rush with offers!
http://en.africatopsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/samy1-300×158.jpg But the big fish is Samuel Eto’o, the man with extravagant fees. For now, deals abound. All the big clubs in the world are ready to welcome the four times ‘African Golden Ball’ provided also that he would consent some financial efforts. That is not the problem. Moreover, a destination close to his heart: Chelsea where he would find Jose Mourinho.
If this option fails, Inter where Eto’o is still much revered ranks as Manchester United which could lose Wayne Rooney through Chelsea. The last teams to show up are Roma of Rudi Garcia and a more golden exile to the United States and the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Eto’o has a choice and knows he is the last missing piece in the reconstruction of Anzhi Makhachkala. He will therefore be pledged to release the floor.
