Gudjohnsen signs for AEK
We got ourselves a new striker. Eidur Gudjohnsen from Iceland will join us the next two seasons. Gudjohnsen is coming over from Stoke City. The captain from the Iceland national team played for a lot of clubs, including Barcelona, Chelsea, AS Monaco and PSV Eindhoven.
The transfer to Athens came throught this sunday afternoon after some trouble, because West Ham United was also interested in Gudjohnsen.
I’m not sure what to think about this transfer. Gudjohnsen is a great player with a lot of experience, but doesn’t score a whole lot. His best season was 2001-2002 when he scored 14 goals for Chelsea. On the other hand, the man won championships in England and Spain and the Champions League as well, and is known for his perseverance. So I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. And let’s face it, we should be very glad being able to buy any players at all.
