Anzhi Makhachkala player-coach Roberto Carlos says that his recent interview concerning players targeted by the Russian club was taken out of context and that he never mentioned specific names:
‘Words are attributed to me about mythical new signings, whose names at times are a total surprise. Not in one interview did I utter any concrete names.’
The Brazil legend also stressed that he may never grant another interview to the media if they are going to twist his words:
‘From this moment, I am not giving any more interviews to allow me to concentrate completely on my work as a coach at Anzhi.’
Our very own Robin van Persie was among the players linked to the Russian club, together with Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and Chelsea’s Nicolas Anelka. However, it seems that the trio were never mentioned at all, which is great to here! But speculation may still be there, despite Carlos recently rubbishing the links.
I for one just hope RVP’s link to Anzhi was just a rumour…time will tell.
