The club have confirmed that Serbian winger Zoran Tosic has agreed a four year deal with CSKA Moscow.
Zoran's career at United quite simply didn't take off at United. His body physique was certainly not one for a league with the most unforgiving defenders. He's got the potential to be a great player but he was not ready to start from the bottom at Old Trafford; always talking of his desire to play first team football. Sir Alex has got Valencia, Nani, Park, Obertan, as well as Giggs and Hargreaves if you like as options on the midfield flanks.
Wish him well.
Meanwhile over in South Africa, there seems to be a sort of goal drought. It's a bit unusual that we are averaging just a goal a game. Whether that is down to the ball, the pitches, the level of competition, I don't know. Germany put four past Australia----and maybe that was because it was Australia. Italy, Brazil, Portugal, France, England, name it have all found it hard to score for fun so far.
Japan and Cameroon connived to put up a lullaby of a match---I mean Slovakia and New Zealand offered more entertainment and drama.
DPR Korea pulled off the impossible and scored against mighty Brazil. On a serious note, their display against the favourites throws up questions about how they come to be the lowest ranked team in FIFA rankings at the World Cup.
Just about all teams have played a game so far and at the moment, defences are on top. Here's to a major goal rush over the next seven days!
Oh and by the way; forget Maicon's stunning goal, for me the highlight of the world Cup so far is the sight of the DPR Korea striker (Asian Rooney) crying...no, weeping whilst their National Anthem was being played over the Address System. Fell off my seat!
