Nenad Milijas loses his place for Serbia’s crucial game

18 06 2010

Nenad Milijas was today dropped to the bench for Serbia’s second Group D match against Germany.

He was less than impressive in the opening game against Ghana and Kuzmanovic has replaced him in the centre of midfield.

At the time of writing the game is ten minutes old and Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is the co-commentator on BBC 1 & HD.





RUMOURS: Double signing of Stephen Hunt and Steven Mouyokolo to be confirmed tomorrow

17 06 2010

Wolves had bids rejected for Hunt in January.

Rumours are rife on internet message boards that Wolves will tomorrow announce the signings of Stephen Hunt and Steven Mouyokolo from Hull.

As I reported yesterday, sources in France claim a deal is in place for Mouyokolo and Mick McCarthy has always been a long-term admirer of Hunt.

One poster claims that there has been a press conference called for midday. Sporthull.co.uk always seems certain that Mouyokolo in particular will join.

Steven Mouyokolo to sign for Wolves?

16 06 2010
 

Mouyokolo made 23 league appearances for Hull last season

According to the French website ”EspoirsduFootball.com” Wolves will sign Hull’s French defender Steven Mouyokolo.

The 23-year-old has attracted scouts from the country’s top teams including both Arsenal and Liverpool but this website is reporting that we are set to sign the lad.

Now my French isn’t the greatest but their article roughly translates as:

“The young French defender Steven Hull City Mouyokolo evolve next season at Wolverhampton in the English Premier League.
Moved to England last season from Boulogne sur Mer, it will therefore remain a season at Hull City, relegation to Championship.

The Congolese-born French was more coveted or months of insistence by Arsenal, Chelsea, Blackburn or Fulham. He granted an interview to EspoirsduFootball.com.”

It was recently reported in the Times that Hull have offered the defender a new four-year-deal in an attempt to ward off potential buyers.

For those of you who would prefer to read in French, then go ahead…

Milijas lasts 61 minutes for Serbia

13 06 2010

Milijas played in the same team as Birmingham's new signing Nikola Zigic.

Nenad Milijas lasted just 61 minutes in Serbia’s 1-0 defeat to Ghana in Pretoria.

He looked far from fully fit and was replaced by Zdravko Kuzmanovic with a third of the game still to go.

Kuzmanovic went on to concede a penalty that Ghana subsequently scored with under ten minutes left.

In line with the way the rest of the tournament has gone so far, the game was far from a classic with shots on goal at a premium.
