Here are some snippets from today’s headlines:
Peguy Luyindula Eyed By Evian?
Embroiled in a chaotic dispute with his parent club Paris Saint-Germain, Peguy Luyindula is inevitably set to depart the Parc des Princes with Evian in the hunt for his signature.
The 32-year-old has been training with the reserves since the start of the season and has not hidden his displeasure to the media. He has received backing from the player’s union (UNFP) who believe PSG should recall some rulings in the charter of football.
However, according to L’Equipe, Evian Thonon Gaillard are keen to reunite him with his long time friend Sydney Govou, whom he played with at Olympique Lyonnais for two seasons.
The club are on the lookout for a forward and seek an opportunity to lure Luyindula from his PSG debacle.
Pastore In Court Next Week
This is an interesting piece from Le Parisien that reports Javier Pastore and director of football Leonardo are due in court next week, investigating the Argentine’s transfer.
PSG paid €40m for his services from Italian club Palermo but their president Maurizio Zamparini has filed a complaint against Marcelo Simonian, Pastore’s agent, for extortion. This ultimately concerns the amount of commission Simonian received from the deal.
The case will be heard next Wednesday in Palermo, Italy, a day before Pastore is due to play in Slovakia against Slovan Bratislava.
Kevin Gameiro: We’re Going To Corsica To Win
Striker Kevin Gameiro has told PSG’s Official Site that he and his side are going for the win in this Sunday’s trip to the island of Corsica against Ajaccio.
“It will be my first ever game in Corsica and while I know it’s not an easy place to travel to for an away game, we heading there to win.” He stated.
Teammate Jeremy Menez added to that testament by saying the team does not need to carry any more pressure as they are already league leaders:
“After the international break, the squad is full of confidence. We’re first in the standings and we don’t need to put any extra pressure on ourselves, just build on our recent performances.”
