Ricketts signs for FC Timisoara

Timisoara moved as quickly as Tosaint Rickets had gone past its defense, when the Viola met MyPa, at the beginning of the season, and secured his signature at a moment when all the other Liga I clubs “work” in the press, negotiating all sorts of deals and swaps for unrealistic prices.

The Canadian forward gets the nicest sign of appreciation from a club he could have hurried out of the European competitions in August, as he scored three goals in the two encouters that finished 5-4 on aggregate for FC Timisoara. Ricketts has left such a good impression that his new club ignorred his rather poor scoring record from Finland – 9 goals in the past two seasons – and offered him a three years long deal, with the option to extend it for another two.

This time, Cosmin Contra (no. 22) gets hold of Ricketts. From now on, Marian Cisovsky will only be embarrased by the Canadian during the training session

PS If I were him, I would have gone straight to Timisoara’s centre back Marian Cisovsky and said a big “thank you!”…

    Well, like I mentioned in my own blog before the deal was sealed all I can do is amaze. He did well vs. Timisoara in the euro games, but those few lucky moments were the only ones where I had seen him show even a glimpse of footballing talent.

    But he is fast!

    lol I’m Canadian myself… born there and lived there my entire life until I moved to Florida just 3 years ago…

    my father’s Romanian but I also have Romanian passport as well… and because of that and the fact that my father and large part of my family is Romanian, I am also Romanian… kinda complex but that’s the way it is ok

    btw I forgot to mention something as I got distracted by telling you about my nationalities…

    this guy, from what I’ve seen, is pretty good. I haven’t seen him play too much as my priority isnt to watch timisoara , but Craiova, Steaua, Man Utd, and Milan.. lol

    Good article , keep us informed on how he is doing at the club….
