CFR starts preparing for the Champions League by offloading the high earners!

May 28, 2010 1 comment

A rumor for a few months now, a certainty starting today: Sixto Peralta leaves CFR Cluj mainly because of his huge salary for Liga I (375.000 Euros/season), but for a small one, if we think of the clubs and players the Romanian champions will meet next season, in the Champions League!

The club asked Peralta if he’d agree to a mutual termination of the current deal and the Argentinian agreed to move on, after two years spent in Romania. A classy player, a complete box-to-box midfielder, gifted with technique and vision above the average, someone who should have never missed CFR’s first eleven when fit, Peralta was too often this season considered just a rotation player, in my opinion, but I have to admit that, even though I admire his skills, he rarely made the kind of impact on a game everyone expected from him.

Another player offloaded by CFR right after completing the double is the Brazilian centre forward Nei, who will return to Al-Shabab, in spite of a couple of decisive performances and goals, in the final matches of the season. Nei collected 20 appearances in the league and scored 5 goals in the process.

Stancu, on the move

January 28, 2010 Leave a comment

After the Karamyan brothers, FC Timisoara released another utility player. Initially transfer listed, with a price tag of 200.000 EUR, Stelian Stancu (28) has reached an agreement with the club to end the current deal, without any other financial demands. Stancu parts ways with Timisoara after 57 matches played in the league in the past two and a half seasons, after his transfer from Steaua Bucharest, in 2007. His versatility proved useful, as he can play as right back, defensive midfielder or right midfielder/winger, featuring this season against Shakthar Donetsk and VFB Stuttgart, in the Champions League’s qualifying stage and also in other four games in the Europa League campaign.
