CSKA: 'Better offers for Honda'

CKSA Moscow slammed Milan for their Keisuke Honda bid. “We’ve had better offers and they can’t treat us like losers.”

Japanese international Honda’s contract is up on December 31, so he will be able to join the Rossoneri as a free agent in January.

Milan are eager to sign him now, but CSKA Moscow have baulked at the €2m proposal.

“We’ve had better offers for Honda compared to the Milan one. Certainly more interesting and economically viable,” said President Yevgeny Giner.

He spoke after Honda scored with a sensational free kick in today’s 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow.

“The issue regards both the sum payable to CSKA and the player’s wages. Milan are an important club and Adriano Galliani is an excellent director.

“However, they have to understand in Italy that they can’t treat us like losers, nor will we let ourselves be conditioned by the newspapers.

“Honda has not lost any motivation. He is a CSKA player and has a contract with CSKA.”
