OFI striker N’Doye leaves Greece to sign for Copenhagen

OFI striker Dame N’Doye left Crete yesterday to join Danish side Copenhagen. The Senegalese player has signed a deal with Copenhagen that will cost the Danes 2 million euros. He was officially presented yesterday, saying that he is an ordinary player and that it is up to his coach where he will play him. N’Doye’s departure adds another major problem for OFI, languishing joint bottom of the Super League table and losing its best player at a crucial point in the championship. The Senegalese striker had scored seven goals in the league, including one against Iraklis last Sunday, so OFI will need an immediate replacement to maintain any chances of remaining in the Super League. N’Doye had come to Greece for Panathinaikos in the summer of 2007 and had a mixed season last year. But he shone from his very first game at OFI this season, attracting the attention of Copenhagen; the Danes closed the deal last week, as announced on Sunday by OFI coach Yiannis Matzourakis.
