Lucio, the versatile captain of the Brazilian national team has left Bayern Munich for Inter Milan. Uli Hoeness, general manager of Bayern Munich, announced details of the move today. He will sign a three year deal with Inter. According to Kicker, Bayern Munich received €8 Million for the transfer.
Lucio had a contract till 30 June 2010 but under Louis Van Gaal, he was surplus to requirements. Bayern Munich have Martin Demichelis,Holger Badstuber,Breno, Edson Braafheid and Daniel van Buyten vying for two places in the team.
He is a defender par excellence. In his five year stint with Munich, he played 144 times and scored 7 goals. He won the league and DFB Cup in 2005,2006 and 2008. His trademark is his astute judgement in defence and offensive orientation in attack.
Bundesliga will miss the God fearing defender for his demeanour on the field. Goodbye Lucio.
Demba Ba recently, faced a transfer saga that might hunt his football career at his present club, Hoffenheim. The drama began after Demba Ba through his agent, Karim Akilil, went to the Press to force his transfer from Hoffenheim to VFB Stuttgart. A deal was almost struck until VFB Stuttgart decided to look else where for a striker that will suit their requirement. During the negotiation, there was a war of words between Demba Ba and Hoffenheim management. The fall out from the crisis, put Demba in a bad light.Hoffenheim fans are angry at Demba’s conduct.
Demba Ba scored 14 goals last season and he was one of the favourite players at Hoffenheim. Presently, he has a lot of work to do, to win the trust and support of his fellow team mates and fans. Already, he has apologized for his actions in the club’s official web site.
He needs to reinvent himself by scoring goals this coming season to silence critics and foes alike. I wish him the best.
