Confirmed: No Aalborg Move For Gordinho
Kaizer Chiefs defender will not be joining Danish club, Aalborg, however the club did ‘speak very highly’ of him after his spell on trial in Europe.
It was confirmed to the Siya crew on Friday that the 22-year-old had put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with the Amakhosi, and it now appears that he has turned his focus to the club’s domestic campaign.
There had been some worries for Chiefs fans as Gordinho played 90 minutes for Aalborg in a friendly this weekend, especially due to the fact that his contract was expiring at the end of the season, although that is no longer the case.
The Siya crew spoke to Mike Makaab Jnr, of Prosport International, who confirmed that Gordinho now has his eyes set on helping Chiefs in their hunt for the Absa Premiership title.
Makaab said, "Aalborg will not be signing Gordinho this window. There were a lot of positives that came out of the opportunity and Aalborg spoke very highly of the boy and his abilities, however he will now focus on the task at hand for Chiefs. This is definitely not the last opportunity that will come Lorenzo’s way."
Gordinho is now back with his Amakhosi teammates in Potchefstroom as they prepare for the second half of the season that gets underway next month.
