Ponomarev slams CSKA Moscow over signing Everton midfielder Gbamin

Former CSKA Moscow defender Vladimir Ponomarev has questioned their swoop for Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin.

Gbamin has joined CSKA on-loan to June.

Ponomarev told Sport-Express: “(President Yevgeni) Giner used to be involved in signing players. Was he removed?

"It can't be that he did such a stupid thing! The man played 8 games in 2 years. It was not even worth taking such a player for free.

"Dynamo at one time took 8 Portuguese and nothing came of it. Giner used to make spot purchases. And now they have recruited second-rate players."
