    I don't know whoever has been advising our footballers. There he goes to the 'dark league'. Personally, i think he should have learnt something from Laryea, Dramani, Illiasu and all the other whose careers were somehow murdered by this league. Wishing you all the best man. Bt frankly, i don't support your decision but it's yours to make.

    Russia? wrong move for any foreign player, more to say an African. Maybe france or scotland would have been better.

    All that these agents want is to make money from these young players. Where they play is not what they look at! He has to do well in the club so that a club in the West will spot him otherwise hmmmmmmm Russia!! Racism too abounds!

    Good move. Spartak Moscow is Champions League team and one of the best in Russia. Their coach is spanish and they play Barcelona type football. The free was 2.9 million pounds.

    Ghanaman, check your facts well. The fee is €2.9 million not £(Pounds), am still not convinced about this move. I was hoping that he would move to the Dutch Eredivisie and aid his development then the BIG clubs will come knocking after he's become an established player. Warris is not yet a complete player like some Ghanaians think, wish him all the best anyway.

    Spartak moscow is highly rated one of the best clubs in europe. If warris is that good this will be a test for him because russian league is tough. You know how many excellent African players are there right now? plenty. even osaze odemwingie started from russia. good luck boi

    You guy are kidding, ask Laryea, Dramani, Illiasu that where did they make good money and when they where playing in Russia , they were play regular for Ghana, so if the league is so bad why all this africa stars are he, ETO ,OBINNA from Nigeria and Amenike from Nigeria and Doumbia from Ivory coast and why ROBERT CAROS came here . My brothers football is now cash , so let the boy cash in.
