The new “export product” of those from CFR Cluj could stay in Gruia from the summer as well

The interest in the Transylvanian striker exists, and now, Cristi Balaj, spoke about the situation of the player, whom he hopes to be able to keep from the summer.

Also, the official from CFR Cluj said what elements surprised him about the footballer from Kosovo.

“I say yes, we can keep him (not Krasniqi), but it remains to be seen because when a tempting offer appears it’s hard to resist. It doesn’t surprise us anymore, because we also see him in training. What I like it’s the modesty he has.

In fact, all the current players at CFR have a special modesty. They are players with incredible character. They smile when they see you, when you meet them, when you talk to them.

That’s incredible! How they prepare, the seriousness they have, the desire to train, to play, even if they play the last 10 minutes or are starters, the behavior is the same”, said Cristi Balaj,
