In an interview with our colleagues at RMC yesterday, former Marseille attacking midfielder Mathieu Valbuena admitted he went to Russia for economic reasons.
He had the following to say:
“I weighed up the pros and the cons and I am very pleased I took this option. They made a serious financial effort to sign me and that was an important part of my choice. I won’t lie, financially Dynamo Moscow have put me in a fantastic condition.”
