It sounded like a Declaration of love. As Sekou Sanogo was extended in August of this year, his contract in the case of YB in advance by a year until 2021, said the Ivorians in the camera, raved about the "great Team", in which he could play and "unforgettable weeks", the may experience in the course of the most celebrations. The attachment to YB, and Bern seemed so strong that Sanogo made despite numerous interested parties from Qatar, China and major European leagues to make a clear commitment to the Young Boys. The 29-Year-old expressed the desire to apply for the Swiss passport and to begin to his career at YB in the Junior area of his coaching career. "I look forward to the future with YB," said Sanogo.
With the creeds, it is in the fast-moving football business is such a thing – and within four months can develop desires and dreams of footballers is completely different. In the last few weeks, rumors of a change were to come, after the AS Monaco, AS Roma and Teams from the United Arab Emirates, interest in the Ivorians had expressed. After the last preliminary round game last Sunday in new castle, Sanogo responded to this newspaper easily irritated on the question of whether the 4:1 win against Xamax was his farewell performance in the Jersey of YB. "Why should this be my last game? I still have a contract until 2021."
Now al-Ittihad seems, eight-time world champion in Saudi Arabia, but the arguments found to have the Sanogo led to a change of mind. And this will hardly be of a sporting nature – and not just because of the Club from the port city of Jiddah, the last season just once on the 9. Rank graduated.
His biggest successes in al-Ittihad, the oldest Club in the country, celebrated in the years 2004 and 2005, when it won the Asian Champions League. Since the Cup victory in 2013, no successes are added. Under the Aegis of the former national coach of Croatia, Slaven Bilic should change this. Sanogo receives the financial strength of the Association a contract for three years plus an Option. He is supposed to earn per year in the future, the 2.5 million Euro.
Intentional reduction of personnel
The departure of the middle field player is a big loss for YB, he had developed since his move from Thun 2014 the undisputed chief in the centre. Sport-in-chief Christoph Spycher says, you have to expect a departure of the Ivorian as they relate to. Now a solution is found, the voice for all parties. The transfer fee should be in the higher single-digit million range.
After the recently announced exchange of Leonardo Bertone to Cincinnati Aebischer, Djibril Sow and Sandro Lauper three Central midfield players in the squad are up to date with Michel. "We were aware that there will be this Winter changes, finally our squad was focused on the triple burden," says Spycher and suggests that he is likely to commit to, not a replacement. "We have a young, promising players who have already proved that you take responsibility." (Tages-Anzeiger)
