Carlitos told about the backstage of his transfer to Legia Warsaw. The forward in an interview with “WP Sportowe Fakty” revealed that he himself had a great influence on the successful conclusion of the talks.
During the summer transfer window, Carlitos returned to Legia Warszawa. The former striker of the Warsaw club decided to make such a move, although he had offers from Wisła Kraków and Lech Poznań.
The final election of the Spaniard may have been influenced by the particular considerations he had for “Military”. The sniper admits that Legia played a big part in his career.
– Legia gave me something different, it took me to another dimension when it comes to football. What I mean? For example, about the pressure that accompanies this club, the requirements that are placed on both the club and it. You feel that you are part of something big here. The transition from Wisła to Legia was a very, very important moment in my career. Legia gave me a lot. And football, but I’m also talking about living with my family here – he revealed in an interview with “WP Sportowe Fakty”.
Carlitos was so determined to return to Warsaw that he reached out to the club in Warsaw. Perhaps without the financial commitment of the player himself, the entire transfer would not have happened.
– The transfer was very difficult for several reasons. First of all, I had a very high contract with Panathinaikos, which was valid for another year. Panathinaikos has received many offers for me, some very high. At first, however, they were all rejected. The Greeks said no to 6-7 clubs as far as I am concerned. They didn’t want to sell me for a long time – He said.
– It was difficult to find a solution that would allow me to join Legia. Fortunately, it finally worked. I must admit that I played a large part in this, pushing for consent to change the club. And I am grateful to Panathinaikos for finally understanding me and agreeing to the transfer – he stressed.
– I confirm that I have contributed EUR 150,000 to keep the talks closed. At some point, things stood still, but fortunately we managed to bring them to an end through a joint effort Carlitos summed up.
The Spaniard’s return to Łazienkowska is defended in terms of sports. The Spaniard appeared in four matches and scored three goals.
