Firstly, defender Martin Petras, who has been playing with Cesena (or rather hasn’t been playing), has moved to join Grosseto in Serie B, with which he has signed a contract for a year and a half. Petras said: “I am happy to be back playing and that is why I am committed to the maximum, especially in a club that has big ambitions for the future”.
The second player is no other than Ankaragücü striker Robert Vittek, who is leaving the Turkish first league team to join Red Bull Salzburg, after being given the all clear at his medical examination at the weekend. Salzburg had to cough up some EUR 3.8 million for 28-yr old Vittek, but they are confident he is worth the money. His price went up after scoring three goals in the World Cup finals.
Vittek will join fellow countryman Dusan Svento at Salzburg, who is happy with Vittek’s arrival to the club, saying it would be a huge reinforcement for the team.
