Anderson Castilho switches from NSÍ Runavík to title-rivals
Last week, the news broke that NSÍ Runavík's Brazilian striker Anderson Castilho, who is joint 3rd on the top scorers list, had switched to title rivals B36 Tórshavn. Apparently, there have been a few problems between the player and the club, which is why NSÍ let him go.
But the question is if NSÍ are suffering such a big loss. Sure, Castilho has scored 9 goals, but 7 of those came in 2 games and 1 of the other 2 was on a penalty. So although he is joint 3rd on the top scorer list, he has only scored in 4 of the 16 rounds played so far (he has also been out injured for 1 or 2 of those 16 games). But NSÍ should be able to cope without him.
But the problem for NSÍ is however that Castilho is joining title-rivals B36 Tórshavn. Let's just say that Anderson is not a workaholic in any way, but at B36 he will have Ivorian striker Sylla to feed him, and their partnership just might become a very lethal combination.
So, in conclusion: Maybe not a big loss for NSÍ, but a bigger gain for B36...
KÍ Klaksvík sign Danish forward Denni Conteh
KÍ Klaksvík have sharpened their attack with Danish forward Denni Conteh, who becomes 32 in August.
Conteh has been wide around and played for many clubs both in Denmark and Europe. In Denmark he has played for 6 clubs in the top flight (Lyngby, Hvidovre, Viborg, Herfølge, FC Nordsjælland and OB Odense) where he scored 18 goals in 69 matches. In Europe he has played for RC Strasbourg in France (4 goals/45 matches), Sparta Rotterdam in Holland (7 goals/26 matches) and Molde in Norway (0 goals/6 matches).
But Conteh's form has been dipping in the latter years, and in the last months before the summer he has played for Danish club BK Frem in the second-best division where he hasn't impressed the coaches and board, as they were not interested in keeping the player.
But KÍ were interested and they have his autograph until the end of the 2007 season.
When in form, Conteh is a player with a superb technique who can get past defenders with sharp and tight dribbles. This should also suit KÍ's other striker well, Paul Clapson, who is strong with his head, and undoubtedly, Conteh will provide Clapson with a few balls he can head into the net so that KÍ can finally get out of the relegation zone for good ...
