Kameni to sign for Malaga

January 14th, 2012 - 6:40 pm ICT by IANS  

Madrid, Jan 14 (IANS) Cameroon international goalkeeper Carlos Kameni has reached an agreement to join Malaga on a two-and-half year deal, the club announced.

Kameni’s decision to agree a two and a half year contract with Malaga puts and end to a seven and a half year period he spent with Espanyol.

Kameni was a regular in the first team, but has not played this campaign after a falling out with team boss Mauricio Pochettino, the manager decided to opt for two young keepers from his B-team rather than use Kameni when first choice goalie Christian Alvarez was injured.

Kameni will now rival Willy Caballero for the goalkeeper’s spot at Malaga. Caballero has been in fine form since joining from Elche Club de Futbol last season, but received heavy criticism for his mistake that led to the goal that saw Malaga lose 1-0 at home to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey Tuesday night.
