Salomon Kalou believes that Football is played a bit differently by the Germans and it’s not easy for a new player coming from some other part of the world to adjust to that style straightaway.
Kalou himself is very new to German Football. He has only spent 6 months playing in Bundesliga for Hertha Berlin, but, so far, it hasn’t seemed that he is facing any sort of difficulty. He has been amongst the goals in whatever few appearances that he has made.
The forward himself, however, does not feel that he is totally comfortable playing the German way.
Salomon Kalou, the new signing of Hertha Berlin, wants to take his side to DFB-Pokal glory in the ongoing season.
Kalou, the 29-year old forward, has been going great guns for Berlin since his joining. He’s already had 3 goals under his belt in the 5 games that he has featured in the German league.
His match winning strike versus VfL Wolfsburg the previous month was sensational and then, he scored a couple more versus Stuttgart too the other day.
The French side Lille signed Salomon Kalou back in 2012 and so far the former Chelsea player has made over 65 league appearances for Lille but Kalou is believed to be interested in making a return to the Premier League. A few days ago the manager of Lille, Rene Girard admitted to the media that the relationship between him and Kalou is not as healthy as it used to be some time ago as the Ivorian forward has even recently been skipping and missing out from pre-season training matches.
Arsenal’s ambition to land Salomon Kalou will continue on despite already having attempted to sign the Ivorian on 2 occasions since last summer. Wenger launched an offer towards Lille during the January transfer window hoping to sign the former Chelsea player but it got rejected, however that will not stop the Frenchman on preparing another bid.
Lille is fighting for the French league title along with PSG, Monaco and Saint- Etienne as they are the clubs located at the top spots of Ligue 1 and the coach of the club Girard Rene made 1 signing during the entire January transfer window.
Sebastien Corchia from Sochaux was the signing that Lille made as they heard the news regarding the defender Franck Beria who is out injured and the French side acted responded by signing the 23 years old Sebastien Corchia.
Salomon Kalou has said that he can play for a Barclays Premier League side in the upcoming years.
Kalou had the opportunity to return to England this summer too as he was approached by West Ham United. But, the 28 years old Ivorian striker decided to continue playing for Lille.
When asked if there is any chance of him going back to Premier League, Kalou said, “Yes, I might go there in future. You never know. I could have moved there this summer as well, but, I rejected West Ham’s offer as I thought that staying at Lille is better for me at this point of time.”
Former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has stated that the return of José Mourinho will propel Chelsea to success this season. The club recently brought the Portuguese manager back to Stamford Bridge after the two parties parted ways back in 2007.
Kalou is currently playing for French club Lille where he has experienced mixed fortunes. He spent seven seasons at the club before leaving the 2012 Champions league winners. During his time at Chelsea, Kalou won all major trophies. It started with the League cup and FA cup that the club won under José Mourinho in the 2006-07 season.
Former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has hinted that may be open to offers from England saying that it is still the best league in the world.
The Ivory Coast international was released by Chelsea after his contract came to an end at the end of the 2012 season. In his final season at the club, the striker managed to lift the Champions League title. He transferred to the French league as a free agent with Lille, but his first season in France has not gone according to plan. He has struggled for form during his 12 months at the club.
Although the Australian A-League may not attract quite as much fan or betting attention as football leagues in Europe, the fact that so many sports betting sites offer markets for it indicates that plenty of people are interested in wagering on it.
This season’s A-League sees the Central Coast Mariners currently installed as the hot favourites for the title, as you can get odds of just 7/4 on them at many of the sportsbooks – but it isn’t a one-horse race, as there are other sides considered to be in contention.
The Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku, who is currently on loan at West Brom, has been one of the best teenagers in English football this season.
