Guélor Kanga has probably already said goodbye to Prague’s Sparta. The early 30-year-old Gabonese midfielder allegedly signed a new contract with Crvena Zvezda Belgrade, from where he came to Letná in the winter of 2018.
The official confirmation of the transfer is still missing, but Crvena Zvezda published on her social video on Wednesday evening, in which she announces the return of the big star. And Serbian fans immediately recognized that this was an audio recording of the goal that Kanga scored in the Red Star jersey during his first engagement at the club.
Kang’s departure for Serbia is also reported as a finished item by the daily Sport, which owns the same owner as the football Sparta.
Kanga came to Letná in January 2018 and immediately became one of the most prominent faces of the club. During 81 matches in the red jersey, he scored 31 goals and recorded another 16. But he also managed to collect 27 yellow cards and one red card.
He and Sparta managed to win the trophy only at the last moment, when this summer the Prague team won the MOL Cup. In the European Cups, however, Kanga only played qualifiers.
During the summer, Sparta’s sports manager Tomáš Rosický allegedly offered Kang a one-year + one-year contract with precisely defined option conditions, but the Gabonese representative refused because he wanted a higher salary and a two-year contract.
At one point it seemed that Kanga would go to Turkey for the better, but Trabzonspor’s interest eventually cooled, so he took the offer of his former club. According to Serbian media, he signed a three-year contract with the Belgrade club.
