Bou angry at move to Chinese football falling through

Buenos Aires, Feb 27 (IANS) Argentinean footballer Gustavo Bou is angry that Racing Club president Victor Blanco did not accept his transfer to Chinese club Beijing Guo’an.

“I am angry and sad as the president made a deal with me but did not honour it. The offer arrived from China, the club refused. The offer was increased but then, with a few hours left, they put obstacles up,” complained the forward, reports Xinhua.

“I want to know why this happens. It seems I am the victim here as I am now staying with Racing with the same contract, they didn’t improve it. Representatives from China came and we talked about the amount of the transfer. I have already said this to the executives of the club. The president went back on his word to me.”

Bou is the principal striker for Racing Club, one of Argentina’s big five. He said that Beijing Guo’an offered “the money that Racing wanted, $8 million. Then, Blanco agreed to the transfer but changed everything with a few hours left”.

“In June, I will do everything possible to move to China and for the club to be happy. However, for the moment I will stay with Racing with the same contract and continue giving it my all,” he said.
