Contacts with Javier Mendoza to a happy end
Everything shows that the contacts with Javier Mendoza will have a happy ending for AEL. The Argentinian, who was acquired last January, agreed to the adjustment of his contract and will remain a resident of Limassol.
A development that certainly makes Christos Charalambous happier than anything else, since he wanted to stay. He is betting big on him ahead of the new football season. He came in January, he didn't have time to train for the first time with his new team and he got injured. An injury that kept him out for quite some time.
When he returned to competitive action, it was clear that the quality was there, but he needed time to find his footing and match rhythm. Which happened towards the end of the season. That's where he stepped up, and really showed signs of what he can do and how much he can help. In the last matches he was one of the standouts for the blue and yellow, and he also scored crucial goals, such as the one against Olympiakos in the repeat cup, sending his team to the final.
Now after his stay in the team, AEL he gains a footballer with quality, good execution in set-pieces and a player with a Latin American temperament, who can change the game at any moment. He has shown that he can meet the demands, and is expected to be a very important player in his coach's plans.
