Novica Erakovic's layoff changes the scene
It was really bad news about Novica Erakovic The Montenegrin midfielder has suffered a cruciate ligament tear and will be out of action for around 6 to 8 months. A very big misfortune for the player primarily and secondarily for Omonia.
Although we did not have a sufficient sample, the assessment was that this was a case that seemed to fit Omonia's “want” for the acquisition of a player for the midfield who provides solutions and balance…
Erakovic can play both as an 'eight' and as a holding midfielder, coming off a strong year he has shown to be the style the team is looking to add to their roster. He is not a player who “built” a name but had the prospects to do so through Omonia.
According to the indications, Omonia will proceed with the acquisition of a player to replace the absence of Montenegro with the design team looking for someone with the characteristics that refer to a complete box to box midfielder.
The technical leadership with Athletic Director are studying specific other transfer targets and it is possible that a new one will emerge soon for at least one case. The next few hours are crucial, with time pressing for Omonia 14 days before the first game against Kampala.
Young Nigerian Akinkumi Amo is also interested in being acquired this will be regardless of the original plans since he is a list B player. He is unprepared and because of this the case is not a priority for the greens. Even if it is decided to be acquired it will take time before it can be used. At the moment he is training with the team while there is also his involvement in a legal process in Denmark.
The case is ongoing.
