Chico: Relief and bet

Must read

What does his transfer mean for Anorthosis and Nea Salamis

ΤσΙκο: ΑνακοΙφιση και στοΙχ&eta ;μα

It's official! The Chiko Banza series has finally come to an end, with Anorthosis announcing the acquisition of the Angolan international until 2027. We remind you that the “Lady” will give a total amount close to 200,000 euros to New Salamina, which also retains a resale percentage.

Little is known about what happened this summer starring the 24-year-old winger, who after renewing his contract with the “red and whites” until 2026… saw his name “playing” in the report of other clubs. The “sirens”… seem to have influenced the footballer, who made sure to show his intention to get a transfer by not returning to Cyprus, but also not preparing with the rest.

An official proposal, however, came only from the Russian team, to which a counter-proposal was made without coming back. Along the way, official interest emerged from the “blue and white” of Famagusta and although the two refugee associations found it relatively easy… it was questionable when he would return to our island, since according to information he missed some flights. Meanwhile, during the negotiations, we also had the posts of the player wearing an APOEL and Apollon shirt, as well as Panathinaikos pants, which brought discussions, but at the end of the day they had no importance.

In fact now and starting with his former team, it is a fact that New Salamina has lost perhaps its most important player. In terms of competition, we are clearly talking about a blow, since Chiko's performances last season are there and cannot be disputed. However, as things have developed in recent weeks, his departure is more of a relief than a disappointment. He left a player whose behavior did not do him any good, he had no intention of offering the new season and was one of the highest paid.

Regarding his new football station, Anorthosis undoubtedly added to its roster an extreme attacker who is very capable in one-on-one, fast with explosiveness and quite developable, because he still has to reach his “ceiling”. At the same time, as it turned out, Chiko is a player who needs special management as we think it would be wrong to ignore his behavior in his previous team. There is no question, but he adds elements to the roster that were missing last season and has the prospect of turning into one of the most valuable tools for Mr. Cayejo.

In conclusion, Chiko's move from New Salamina to Anorthosis, brought relief on the one hand, while on the other side, specifically his new “home”, as can be seen from the above analysis, it is, in the first year, a bet… and it remains to be seen if he himself live up to expectations. However, the only thing that is certain is that the Angolan has kept us busy this summer!
