Large pufos of the Spanish League: Alexei Kosolapov
Unfortunately for the faithful followers of Sporting Gijon, the club, dishonorable holds the record for being the worst team in league history, in particular its version of the season 1997-98 where gijonés club only managed to score 13 points in the league after winning just two games, tying seven losing nothing more and nothing less than 29 matches. To complete a horrific numbers, Sporting 1998 only he marked 31 goals and conceded 80.
With such numerical horrors, the members of that staff could not miss in this section. Since we can not talk about all, we will focus on a Russian who arrived a few million pesetas old, Alexei Kosolapov. Born in 1971, in summer 1997, He came to play the ranks of Sporting Gijon this Russian player for the not inconsiderable figure of about 300 million pesetas. After 6 matches and a goal in a intranscendente Mallorca 6-Sporting 2, He came out in January 1998 towards Russia initially on loan.
And is that the club had signed him gijonés for four years to the style of what they did almost all teams First blinded by the time the first million televisions and supported by the Bosman Law. A fact that indeed, It cost the disappearance of many of them, declines in others and complicated situations such as living Sporting itself right now.
Kosolapov btw, it went on loan between Russia and Israel until the 2000 finally he could terminate his contract in a totally chaotic and ruinous operation. But it does not end there. The name of the Russian came back to the fore 13 years later when in February 2013 Sporting, he paid a 50.o0o euros owed from 1998. Maybe more than one would have paid otherwise, perhaps to Gorraz. As we have said before and we have had in this section, recent years of 90 were the years of authentic pufos. A full time sports absurdities that some paid dearly.
