The random transfer rumor linking young Malmö center back Anel Ahmedhodžić with an €8m move to Chelsea has taken an even more random turn, with the player’s father launching a social media tirade against his son’s agent, Markus Rosenberg (the former Swedish international and former Ajax, Werder Bremen, and West Brom striker).
“[Rosenberg’s] not doing his job. He has told Marina at Chelsea that Anel is not going there.
“He wants to go abroad after the season finishes. He also believes that Italian agent Federico Pastorelli has been in talks with several club across Europe to make a deal happen for Ahmedhodzic.
“Markus hasn’t arranged this, he doesn’t have the contacts. I have tried to inform Markus that Pastorelli wants to cooperate with him.”

Presumably he means Federico Pastorello, whom we might remember from the days of Antonio Conte, and all the various transfer dramas.
Not that it matters, because the player himself just wishes his father would shut up, as apparently it’s not the first time he’s caused some problems for his son.
“I can start by saying that I am very disappointed. To write such things on social media and call other people idiots, not to support me. I have always felt a love for him. But I have not felt any support, he has not supported me in the right way. Especially not now when things are going so well for me.
“I focus on my matches and my football, nothing else. I try to be as humble as I can, I try to do everything in a positive way, I try to be mature in my answers and my thoughts.
“But as you can see. My dad’s not there. He writes various things, especially on Facebook. This is not the first time he has done so. He was also involved when I played in Nottingham Forest, he wrote in some forums there and it has always affected me negatively. I have always received criticism for it.”

I’m not sure how good this Ahmedhodžić kid may or may not be, but this already sounds like way too much trouble than it’s worth.
