Bojinov celebrates a goal he didn’t score!

The Rumour

The agent of Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov has welcomed interest from Lazio.

Gerry Palomba told “I have not been contacted [by Lazio], but I don’t know about City.

“Would he agree to join Lazio? Of course. Valeri still feels Italian and hopes to come back. Lazio are a club no one could reject. It’s a top team and [president Claudio] Lotito has done an excellent job.

“Bojinov has fully recovered from his injury, as proved by his goal against 1860 Munich, and the Citizens have confirmed they have faith in him. Lazio are an interesting idea, but I’ll be able to say more when there is a concrete offer.”

The Analysis

To call Valeri Bojinov’s spell at Eastlands as unfortunate would be an understatement of mammoth proportions. The 23 year old Bulgarian has spent more of his two years at the club on the treatment table than he has on the pitch and even when he has got a run-out his performances have on the whole been misguided affairs and in 12 appearances he has manged to net just once!

The chances of the former Fiorentina and Juventus man getting a first team berth are pretty slim to say the least and now would appear to be a good time for Valeri to leave the club and it appears interest is forthcoming from Serie A and if the club can recoup anywhere near the £9m they invested in him then they will surely take the money and run.

The Likelihood

Bojinov to Lazio: As soon as a relatively decent offer comes in then he is off!
