Luis Fabiano: Could be lured back to Europe by Anzhi

Luis Fabiano: Could be lured back to Europe by Anzhi

The Brazil international returned to his homeland in 2011 after spending seven years with Porto and Sevilla.

He is now 32 years of age, but remains a regular source of goals at club level and an important part of national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans leading up to the 2014 World Cup.

Fabiano has now revealed that he is intrigued by the prospect of heading to Russia to link up with Anzhi - a side who employ Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos as their sporting director and have Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o on their playing staff.

He said: "I can't say anything concrete about it, but anything can happen.

"It may be interesting to play for Anzhi."

Technical

Fabiano has also offered his opinion on international strike partner Neymar and the ongoing rumours linking him with an imminent move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

He added: "I think the Spanish league would fit Neymar's style very much, as they play very technical football.

"I don't know if it would be good for him to join Barcelona because they have Leo Messi, but I'm sure they could play in the same team.

"It wouldn't be easy for Neymar in the beginning as he doesn't have experience at the highest level."

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
