Kalu Goes Kiwi


Last week we announced the news that Port striker Andrija Kaludjerovic had left the club in order to move back to Europe to be with his family, what with Mrs Kaludjerovic being pregnant and all. Obviously a week of family life was about as much as poor Kalu could handle, because it appears he’s just signed a 1-year deal with A-League club Wellington Phoenix of New Zealand – pretty much as far away from his family as he could possibly get without going into space.

This means Kalu has now played for an amazing EIGHT different clubs in the last 3 years. Given his decent goals-per-game ratio it’s no surprise there is always a demand for his services, but he’s clearly not one to stick around. He now joins fellow Port reject Asdrubal Padron in the A-League, where we suspect the cooler NZ climate will be more to his liking than the sweaty heat of Khlong Thoey.
