Javad Nekounam dice que no ha olvidado la eliminación de su equipo de la Copa de la UEFA y que siguen reponiéndose de este varapalo.
A Nekounam le preocupa que su equipo recupere el paso después de unos cuatos discretos en la Liga y que la ansiada victoria, quizás definitiva, disipe los miedos acerca de las apreturas para la salvación.
Con cinco millones de euros como cláusula de rescisión, Nekounam se antoja como un futbolista interesante que ha superado con su gran rendimiento el toque exótico que pudo verse tras su contratación tras el Mundial.
