Israeli company monitoring Romanian player’s nightlife.
AC Fiorentina President Andrea Della Valle stated on Sunday evening that Adrian Mutu is no longer on the list of transfers, nor part of the team’s extended line-up, fiorentina.it informs. “Mutu has betrayed and hurt me. We’ll see what we’ll do, but not with the agent that offended me. At this moment Mutu has been taken off the transfers’ market. We will solve this situation. It has been a year in which we’ve been there for him but we’re disappointed. This year Mutu is off the transfers’ market and the team’s extended line-up because he left the team before a game. In what concerns me he is off the transfers’ market but that is not a punishment. It was lack of respect for him to leave before an important game at his agent’s advice considering the support we gave him,” Andrea Della Valle stated.
Romanian striker Adrian Mutu was excluded from Fiorentina’s practice sessions and training stages for violating his contractual obligations. On Wednesday AC Fiorentina’s official website announced in a communiqué that Mutu left the training session without giving any explanation and that the club will open sports and civil suits against him as a consequence of his latest behavior. Former sport manager Ioan Becali subsequently stated that Mutu left the training session on Wednesday afternoon after finding out that the Italian club would not allow him to be transferred to another Italian team as a player free of contract and after being insulted by club officials.
On the other hand, Realitatea TV informs that the Italian club has resorted to an Israeli company that is working with Mossad agents in order to monitor Adi Mutu’s nightlife and to see whether he is still using cocaine.
IMScounting, a security and consultancy company, is monitoring around the clock the lives of football players that have lost the trust of their employers, with Fiorentina’s Adrian Mutu being one of them. The information was published by Italy’s ‘Corriere della Sera,’ with Zeev Reznik, founder of IMScounting, stating for the daily: “A player is an investment. We help the club so that this investment does not lose its value.”
The monitoring is being done by Mossad professionals. The company’s headquarters are located somewhere in Ramat Gan. There the company centralizes the lives of 50,000 football players from 45 football leagues. “Not even the most insignificant information is neglected,” Zeev Raznik warns. Each player’s file contains both video and audio vidence.
Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, Panathinaikos Athens, Bolton Wanderers, Brescia, Perugia and Fiorentina are only some of the clubs that are willing to pay EUR 15-24,000 to spy on one of their players. There are even some clubs that take interest in players other than their own.
