Thats a small sum that can potentionally pay off big time. Good move on the part of Cottbus. Strange how very good Polish players are sold for peanuts, while average players from western countries or even Croatia or Romania are sold for 5x more.
that is because they'r national team perform very good. Romania and Croatia have very good squads. Once Poland makes a name for herself, our players will be worth that many too. Imagine how much Dudek would have been worth!
Today's article stated that Klaus Stabach, the manager of Cottbus, said that he knows that holding Kaluzny won't be an easy job. He stated that already there have been interests from 2 German clubs, Hertha Berlin and Hamburger SV. Cottbus is already looking for another Kaluzny . Cottbus, who have already looked at A. Bak from Polonia (now Widzew) are interested in Maciej Murawski from Legia Warsaw. The 28 year old already had some offers from foriegn clubs already (the biggest from some club in Cyprus i think) but wants to go to the Bundesliga since its a much better league. He plays defensive-mid for Legia. He played for Poland vs Holland in 2000 and for Poland vs Faroe Island this year. He can also play on the right side of defense (i heard) like Tomasz Klos does for Poland.
I think Cottbus likes Poland as well as other EE players since they have the most EE players in the Bundesliga.
I hope he doesn't sign with them. There has apparently been interest for him from much bigger clubs, including Tottenham. He should finish off his loan, wait till the WC finishes and then reasses his options. I'm sure after the WC he will receive a lot more offers and interest he is getting now.
