After making the rather unexpected switch from English Conference National team Luton Town to League Two’s AFC Wimbledon, Kenyan born defender Curtis Osano hoped that his former team would receive the move well.
Speaking to bedfordshirenews.co.uk.Luton’s technical director Lil Fuccillo concluded that the move was inspired by the desire for more money.
-He’s signed for Wimbledon and I don’t think he’s signed for much more [than Luton were offering], which surprises us, because, no disrespect, I think he’d have grown better with us than at Wimbledon.
-He had his choice and they have a freedom of contract. We can go to another club and if a player is over 24 we can grab them if they want to sign for us.
-That’s where most clubs look, especially at our level. No doubt their directors have come forward and put the money in.
Fuccillo also confessed that he was not exactly a fan of Osano even though he admired his determination.
-I’ve got to be honest, he wasn’t one of my favourites when I walked in, but I’ll give him his due, he worked harder and Paul got something out of him.
- He got better and better as the season developed.
Osano, who had been with Rushden and Diamond prior to joining Luton, played 31 league matches for the Hatters [Luton Town].
