Johan Arango, an old acquaintance in Colombian football, not only because of his talent but also because of the acts of indiscipline that kept him from being a more renowned player, gave something to talk about again in the last few hours. Although he had stepped away from football, it seems he is going to sign for an exotic club in the Bangladeshi league.
The person who reported the possibility of Arango returning to the pitch was the Bangladesh Football Live Twitter account, which day after day reports on football news in that country. On March 12, through a trill, he reported:
“Colombian midfielder Johan Arango has been signed by Bangladesh Police FC. He has experience playing in the first division of Colombia, Peru and Saudi Arabia”.
Although the signing of Johan Arango, 32, has not yet been made official, the version that he will debut in the Asian country gains strength if one takes into account that the player has been training individually with the support of the Colombian Association of Professional Soccer Players (Acolfutpro).
What is striking about the possibility of Arango playing in Bangladeshi football is that he would do so in a team founded in 1972 by the Policesomething paradoxical in a player who has had problems with discipline.
Jaguares, the last team from Arango
Although opportunities are often limited, there are some who have been lucky enough to dedicate their lives to soccer. This is the case of Johan Arango, who despite his indiscipline problems, some related to alcohol consumption, always finds teams that give him the opportunity, although sometimes he does not last as expected.
“Welcome to Jaguares Johan Arango. We confirm the hiring of the Valle del Cauca winger for the Dimayor 2022 competitions,” Jaguares de Córdoba published at the end of February 2022, for example.
And without even spending two months on the feline campus, On April 9, Jaguares issued a statement confirming his departure. “The player Johan Arango resigned from the institution due to family problems,” the club said at the time.
Before his return to the FPC, his most recent experience was at Deportivo Binacional de Perú, a team he joined at the beginning of 2020 after passing in 2019 at the University of Tamaulipas in Mexico. On his international path, he has also worn the colors of Club Juárez, in Mexico, and Al-Batin, in Saudi Arabia in 2018.
In his last year abroad, the 31-year-old attacker recorded 1,563 minutes played in 21 games in the Peruvian league17 of them as a starter and scored seven goals, the same number of scores in 2020 in the same games played.
Falcao, to Malaysian football?
Not only Johan Arango could reach an exotic Asian country, the same is the case with Falcao. The departure of Tigre del Rayo Vallecano could come sooner than expected. In February, the Spanish press announced the interest of Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) from Malaysia in having the Colombian for the next two years, and in March, the team’s coach, Esteban Solari, announced that work is being done to sign the Colombian striker.
Esteban, brother of Santiago Solari, a former Real Madrid player, stated that the team’s owner is looking to break the Malaysian transfer market with the hiring of who became considered the best 9 ‘in the world, taking advantage of the fact that he would seek to leave Rayo Vallecano, where he has not had the desired minutes of play last season.
“We know there’s a possibility, it’s something our boss is working on. We are still waiting, I can’t say more, our boss will decide on Falcao,” said the JDT coach, in statements echoed by the media The Malaysian Reserve, this March 2.
