Thanks for joining us today, as we continue to watch the events unfolding here at Sovatov Samara, today we bring you an exclusive interview with Oleg Romantsev-director of football and Carlos Bianchi, the head man.

Mr Romantsev, do you agree with the pundits who say, that hiring someone like Mr Bianchi, even with his great CV is somewhat of a risk?
"Mr Abramovich and I, were both in agreement on this matter, to help build the Football Club, we needed someone with extensive experience, someone, who, could not only do wonders on the training pitch, but, also understand the way to build a base for a football club. Carlos has this experience, he did amazing things with Boca Juniors and Velez in Argentina, and he is the right man for this job"
"Let me add"says Bianchi"I am very pleased this opportunity presented itself, who wouldn't want to be involved in a project such as this, Mr. Abramovich and Mr.Romantsev have laid out a clear vision for the future, and it looks very bright"

This is all very positive stuff, if that's the case, why sign Mr. Bianchi to a one year contract which expires on 30-6-2013?
"well, we felt, this would give us the most flexibility, and have no doubt, if we have the success that I know Mr. Abramovich feels we should have, then there will be a new contract offer"

exciting news coming from the Metallurg, more news of signings for Samara

Today's exciting transfer news is, Samara has won the bidding war for Leonard Kweuke, the Big Cameroonian Striker, Samara seemed like long shots, but they have beaten teams the likes of Arsenal, Ajax, Napoli, and several others to secure the signature of the highly sought out and rated striker. Oleg Romantsev-director of football had this to say "Leonard is someone, we valued very highly, he is highly sought out, and his physical skills are immense. He gives us toughness and finishing ability in front of goal, that might be unequaled in the Premier League"
Carlos Bianachi said "Leonard is raring to go, he fits in exactly like we'd want any player too, and the clubs that missed out on his signature will rue the day they didn't sign him"
Samara met his $5 Million dollar release clause, and signed him for 64K a week.
Oleg Romantsev-director of football is pleased to announce 3 more key signings for Samara
"We're pleased to present to each of you, our 3 new signings, the players that are brought here, to push us towards European competition"
"Each one was signed by the club, with the specific intent of building a high quality club that can be pushed forward and have the depth that is necessary to compete for trophies"

The first signing is :
Eduardo Vargas from Napoli "Eduardo is very highly rated, his old club Napoli were reluctant to let him go, knowing the fact that he has star potential, but, Eduardo was keen to join the Samara revolution, we nabbed him for 42 million and 93k a week"
The Second signing is:
Miguel Agudo Duran better known as Nolito "Nolito is a tricky winger, who has trained at Barcelona in his youth, so everyone is aware of his quality, we were able to pry him from his last club, Benfica, for 4.8 Million and 28.5k per week"
The Third Signing is:
Adam Maher from Ajax "Adam is really one for the future, he is a highly rated dutch youngster, who is only 19 years old, so his best years are ahead of him at Samara, being able to lure someone of his quality and age here, no matter the money, is a coup for this club, and something that the fans can be proud of, he was signed for 22 million and will be on a 75k a week contract"



let us go to the Metallurg in Samara for a presser to introduce the 4 new Samara players, making their way to the podium are Oleg Romantsev-director of football and Carlos Bianchi, the man in charge

Q"How do you feel these signing can push the club forward"?
A"Clearly, they all add something to the club, or we wouldn't have signed them, they're all quality players who give us vast attacking abilitities, and should help push us up the table, and towards European competition, which we all know is what the chairman expects"
"We feel, That with each move, that is stragegically made, we're able to push ourselves forward talent wise, clearly, these moves are big financially, but, the chairman and myself worked hard, to make sure we didn't buy expensive players just for the sake of it"

Q "How can singing 4 players so close together not cause trouble for the club?"
A" Well, as your aware, we're a very ambitious club, and to meet those ambitions, players must be brought in. Singing them together is sort of a fluke, but it does give the team a chance to jell in preseason, which can be very important"

Q: How did you manage to sign Kweuke, even though some in the media laughed it off?
"well, I won't let the media decide who should sign for the club, its our job, Carlos and myself to target the best players, and clearly, Leonard is one of the best at his position, so of course we wanted him, and credit to Leonard for wanting to join the Samara revolution"
Leonard says "I had many options, but Samara seemed like the club that wanted me most, and they are a club on the rise, who wouldn't want to join in on something this dynamic?"

Nolito says "Samara showed they wanted me, and I believed in the vision of the Director and Carlos, they clearly have a plan and are executing it"

Eduardo Vargas says" This is a top quality club, that is clear for all to see, we're building something great, and I'm proud to be a part of this amazing project

Adam Maher says " Clearly, there is some consternation from the Dutch fans, and those at Ajax, but, with the high quality coaching, and the vision of the chairman, the Director, and the Manager, this club, has all the makings of something quiet powerful, and I'm proud to be here, and look forward to winning trophies and plaudits here"
