FC Rostov’s recently ensconced manager Igor Gamula (above) spoke to journalists following Friday’s 1-0 win over Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast, and perhaps found himself oversharing when it came time to discuss future acquisitions. From The Guardian :
Igor Gamula told local media the club had “enough dark-skinned players. We’ve got six of the things,” when asked on Friday about rumours Rostov would sign Cameroon defender Benoît Angbwa.
Gamula also said that five of his Russian players were ill and “I’m already worrying it’s Ebola”.
Rostov midfielder Moussa Doumbia is from Mali, which has seen sporadic Ebola cases, but there is no suggestion he is infected. Indeed Doumbia played for Rostov in Friday’s game.
