Greek International defender Kostas Manolas has been left out of the Olympiacos squad ahead of their pre-season friendly with Athletico Bilbao tomorrow.
Here’s the proof…
For those of you who don’t understand Greek – firstly, you’re seriously missing out, and secondly here is the squad in English…
Roberto, Meyer, Abidal, Avlonitis, Vouros boots Bouchalakis, Diamantakos, Dominguez, Ntosevi, Elampntelaoui, Fuster, Gkazarian, Qassam, Kolovos, Maniatis, Mazouakou, Entingka Papadopoulos, Salinas, Samara, Saviola.
We’ve been linked with the centre back by multiple sources since the departure of club capitan Thomas Vermaelen. At 23 he’s a young option with some fantastic experience already under his belt, including 13 international appearances.
If there’s one thing we learnt from the Greeks at the World Cup, defending is something they’re good at. Arsene was clearly impressed by his talent and is seemingly interested in bringing the youngster to the Arsenal.
I’m not going to lie, he flew under the radar for me, most Greek games at the World Cup had me asleep at half time, but I guess that’s a great thing for a defender and just what we need in our team. The Tony Pulis school of defending. I’ll take that.
So make of that what you will.
I’ve not read of any injury to the player – care to enlighten me if that’s the case.
He’s clearly on the move somewhere. Let’s hope it’s London Colney.
For those of you that trust Goal – Mr Veysey has just tweeted this…
Arsenal working hard on deal for Kostas Manolas. Could look to wrap it up quickly.
