Nery Castillo – not for sale
With all the hype around Nery, rumors have been floating around that somebody would come to Olympiakos with a big check to take him to another league.
Olympiakos president Socrated Kokkalis said he will reject all offers because he is not interested in selling Castillo. The 23 year old striker raised in Uruguay but born in Mexico is a hot commodity. Chelsea reportedly contacted about him and Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine offered approx. $13 million to buy him.
And if reports from Mexico are correct, Nery Castillo will not play against Chile today so he can get some rest and avoid picking up another yellow card. Not having Nery Castillo will help Mexico avoid winning since they will miss his lethal instincts on attack. That will fall into play with my conspiracy theory that Mexico might be looking to lose against Chile to set themselves up for an easier round two.
