Recently crowned Asian Player of the Year Server Djeparov has been offered a month’s training at Chelsea as part of the prize agreed with the Asian Football Federation.
The Uzbekistan star has had a pretty good season both for his club and his national team and on the interest this seems to have sparked, he says “I know there are some offers for me but at present I am a Bunyodkor player. I am ready to leave if there is a good offer from either a Russian or European club. I played for a new club and won two domestic titles and completed the hat-trick by becoming the topscorer of the league for the first time. Secondly, we made it to the semi-finals of the premier club competition of the continent. To be among the top five players in Asia in itself was a big achievement for me and I was lost for words when I was chosen as the best.”
And on the prize itself, Djeparov says “I am flattered at getting the chance to train with some of the best players in England. I will have to chalk out a plan and talk to the club about releasing me next season.”
