After a weekend of watching a little FA Cup action and some La Liga and Serie A matches, it’s time to turn the attention back to the Rapids.
- Rapids to add attacking midfielder Gilbert Koomson…(ghanasoccernet.com)
- Lopez to Valencia CF?..(superdesporte.es)
Burgundy Wave and Ghanasoccernet.com both report the Rapids are buying Ghanian winger Gilbert Koomson from his current team Songdal of the Tippeligaen, the top flight in Norway. Ghanasoccernet.com says the deal should be finalized sometime this week.
Last week saw the departure of Paul Bravo from the RFO and although these are only rumors, it looks as if another piece to the front office could be leaving as well. El Piojo, as he is known to Valencia supporters, Claudio Lopez is one of those rumored to be a candidate for Sporting Director at his former club Valencia CF according to superdesporte.es out of Spain. Again rumors.
As someone who is also a supporter of Valencia CF, I hope this rumor is just that and Lopez doesn’t leave the Rapids for Valencia. VCF owner Peter Lim is a joke of an owner, broken promises, having had 4 managers over 2 seasons in 2016, selling players and not having brought in any top quality players. VCF currently sit 17th in La Liga, one spot above relegation as the storied club of Valencia CF is clearly in shambles.
