Thursday, January 04, 2007Macedonian youth hope switches from Cyprus to Romania
Vlatko Grozdanovski, the young Macedonian midfielder and the best young foreigner in Cyprus is very close to sign a deal with Rapid from Bucharest.
FC Rapid Bucuresti's technical manager Grigore Sichitiu said that the transfer of Omonia Nicosia’s midfielder Vlatko Grozdanovski to Rapid is 90% sure. According to some rumors Rapid will have to pay 250,000 euros to Omonia for the talented Grozdanovski. The 23 year old started his career in the Macedonian clubs Cementarnica and Vardar and was transfered during the 2005/06 season to Omonia from Nicosia. He has already 13 caps for the Macedonian national team. He was only recently re-called by Macedonia coach Srecko Katanec for the EURO 2008 qualifiying match against Russia, after being left out for a few matches. After his good performances in Cyprus he was elected as the "Best Young Foreigner 2006" in the Cypriot league. Considering the recent great results of Romanian clubs in the European competitions and the growing UEFA co-efficient of their clubs, Grozdanovski truly made a big step in his career in joining Rapid Bucuresti.
By leaving the Cypriot club, Omonia Nicosia will still have a Macedonian player in their team. This week they 25 year old striker Riste Naumov from Vardar was transfered to Omonia as a substitute for the veteran Paolo Rink who left the club this month. Riste Naumov was Vardar's best striker and one of the best attackers in the Macedonian league and the transfer in Omonia is good and very expected step in his career.
