Transfers. The top scorer from the 2017/18 season returns to Ekstraklasa. Carlitos, because we are talking about him, successfully passed the medical tests at Legia Warszawa and was bound by a two-year contract with an extension option. The Spaniard even paid extra from his own pocket to put the T-shirt with “eLka” on his chest again.
The 32-year-old comes to Legia in Warsaw on the basis of a permanent transfer. According to Sebastian Staszewski from the Interia.pl portal, the Warsaw club paid Panathinaikos EUR 300,000. In addition, the Spaniard had to pay extra for the transaction himself (around EUR 100,000). In the team from Łazienkowska, he will wear a T-shirt with the number 19.
– I am very glad that we managed to get Carlitos. He is a footballer who knows Ekstraklasa very well. He has an excellent technique, a great tactical sense and perfectly finds spaces in the penalty area. Motor and fitness tests confirmed that Carlitos is in much better physical shape than when he left our club three years ago. It’s really impressive. Now he can give a lot more to Legia – said Jacek Zieliński, sports director of the Warsaw club
– Legia is Legia – each year it can achieve a good result in the league. I can promise you that I will give the band everything I have. The club gave me a lot and I want to give back at least what I got from it – emphasized the new acquisition of Legia.
