thumbnail Hello,

The Espanyol coach has told the rich Russian club to deal with them directly and not the Ghanaian player

Espanyol coach Javier Aguirre has stated that Russian side Rubin Kazan should stop direct dealings with Mubarak Wakaso and rather approach the club.

The Spanish side are of the believe that the petrol-rich Russian club are inducing the Ghana international with money hence his ultimatum to them to sell him.

“We have always behaved very well in the Wakaso transfer episode,” Aguirre told the club newspaper. “What the Kazan stakeholders have to do is, instead of meeting the player they should convince us.”

Wakaso, 23, joined Espanyol from Villareal last season and has been one of the best players in the setup of coach Aguirre.

Swansea wanted to sign him this summer but their money fell short of what Espanyol were demanding.
