Matej Delac


Recommended Posts

So we signed this kid as a 17 year old from Inter Zapresic, bags of potential, a call up from the Croatian national team...

He's at Vitesse in Holland right now, but hasnt made a single first team appearance.

I just wanted to know what everyone else thought about this lad. Surely he was bought to become Cech's eventual replacement, but when Cech hangs up his boots (for the sake of argument) say 12 years from now, Delac's going to be 30...is he really going to stick around for that long??

We were lucky to get Cech at a very young age and at the price that we did. But not signing a promising player based on the premise that there is an existing seasoned campaigner is foolishness. There are many factors in a players career that determine the amount of time he is going to stay at his peak, with Cech its been pretty good till now but injury and form are a couple of issues that can always come up. Besides if Delac is indeed better than Cech we may have to do what happened at Ath Madrid where a promising De Gea was chosen ahead of Asenjo.
