It’s official: Afellay, Cule

Madrid – Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven officially announced on Monday the sale of midfielder Ibrahim Afellay to Spanish champions Barcelona. Affelay, 24 – who was part of the Netherlands squad at the World Cup finals – will be eligible to play for Barca from January 1.

Ibrahim Afellay

This is the first major deal of the European winter transfer window. According to media reports, Barca will pay PSV around 3 million euros (4.11 million dollars) for the player, who will sign a four-year contract with the Catalan giants.

Not since 2005 have Barca signed a player in winter, unlike profligate rivals Real Madrid. Coach Pep Guardiola appears to have realized that his squad is rather thin, especially now that veteran playmaker Xavi has started to pick and choose his matches due to a chronic Achilles tendon injury.

Ibrahimovic: “Pep Reminds me of Gandhi”

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to pass comment on his former coach, Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola, on this occasion bizarrely comparing him to former political figure Mahatma Gandhi.
The Swede is currently on loan in Serie A from the Blaugrana, and has previously been vocal in his criticism of his former boss, branding the tactician “a philosopher”.


Now Ibrahimovic, who netted the winning goal in the derby clash against Inter on Sunday evening, was speaking to Scandinavian broadcaster TV10, and said of Guardiola: “With the way he dresses and talks, he always want to look like a philosopher. He reminds me a bit of Mahatma Gandhi when he is preparing his team.
“People say that he has won six trophies, but I could have won six trophies as the coach of that team. You can play without a coach – to me, they are the best team in the world.”
The striker also insisted the full reasoning behind his departure from the Camp Nou club has not yet been fully explained to him, continuing: “My farewell was a personal matter. It cannot be due to my quality, because there was never any discussion on that part. You cannot be the leader, have dialogue with 20 players, but with the 21st look the other way.”
