Ivan Mamut, paradox in the derby of CS Universitatea Craiova

Article by Andrei Crăiţoiu, Dan Udrea – Posted Tuesday, 10 May 2022 23:45 / Updated Tuesday, 10 May 2022 23:56

Ivan Mamut, the Croatian who brought the victory of FCSB from Craiova, score 1-0, has amazing numbers in the 11 minutes ticked in Bănie: he touched the ball 5 times, but the only time he hit the ball correctly with his foot was right at the goal stage marked with the heel. He hadn’t scored in almost 16 months, and in the previous 3 stages he hadn’t ticked even a minute on the field. Panduru claims that his introduction on the field had no football logic, but Becali announces that he will already extend his contract.

If FCSB lives in the fight for the title and can still play in the last stage with the trophy on the table, the derby with CFR Cluj is due to the victory in extremis obtained on Sunday in Craiova. The visitors’ Ivan Mamut took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side’s goalie and center backs 86 minutes into the match.

The Croatian was introduced on the field less than two minutes earlier, and the way he presented himself in the over 11 minutes, including overtime, is developing an incredible situation. The radiography includes only the weirdos, and GSP reviewed and analyzed in detail what Mamut did on the field from the moment Petrea appealed to him to the final whistle of Istvan Kovacs.

The incredible conclusion of Ivan Mamut’s performance

Mamut only hit the ball with his foot twice, but once he did it correctly, even at the goal scored with the heel. Instead, he provided two good passes, both with his head, actually coming from the duels won by the Croatian striker, while the second time he put his left foot on the ball he made a failed takeover.

A defender would theoretically have a better chance of scoring than Mammoth. How much could Mammoth have? Zero, right? You can’t get a player who doesn’t score goals. Take out two scoring goals, you can’t put in one that doesn’t score. It wasn’t lucky that Mammoth scored, it was very lucky. Not even inspiration. Inspiration is when you have Keşeru and Rusescu on the bench and you choose which one to put. It’s not inspiration when you introduce Mammoth, you’re out of luck
– Basarab Panduru, Orange Sport expert

The former football player of Steaua and of the national team also brought an argument regarding the fact that the introduction of Mamut is something devoid of any football logic.

“Before this match, FCSB had a few games in which it paraded, it won by a score. Even when he was 4-0, he didn’t give Mamut a few minutes, thinking that maybe he would keep him in the future. And then, how can I say that it is inspiring to believe that Mamut can help you in a match with Craiova? It doesn’t make any sense. “

What Panduru claims is confirmed by the way Mamut was treated and expressed in the red-blue shirt. In the previous 3 stages, the Croatian was not used for even a minute:

In fact, the goal scored by the Croatian on Sunday is against everything he has been lately, whether he was in the FCSB shirt or in the one of the University of Craiova.

In Croatia the brand

The performance under any criticism that Mamut had in Romania, at the two big clubs of League 1, makes a discordant note with his performances in Croatia. There, in the previous 2 years, he played for Inter Zapresic.

20 consecutive matchesin which he played, until the match Craiova – FCSB, Mamut had not managed to score

Between 2018 and 2020, his team was active in the first league, and Mamut scored 10 goals in 51 matches. Then, in the summer of 2020, Zapresic was relegated to the second league and until he was acquired by Craiova, he played another 7 games, in which he scored another 4 goals.

16 monthshad passed from the previous goal scored by Mamut, on January 29, 2021 he had scored in the match CSU Craiova – FC Argeș 1-1

Mammoth convinced Gigi Becali

In addition, the vice-champion’s owner announced that he will extend Mamut’s contract after the goal scored on Sunday. “I will extend the contracts for both him and Dumiter. With their goals if we take the title, then we have a guaranteed presence in the Europa League groups, so revenues of 20 million euros, it doesn’t matter an expense of a few hundred thousand euro, “Becali said. Dumiter is the one who brought the victory in the play-off match from Pitești, score 3-2, when he scored right in the last phase.

God made it wise for me to choose the players. And when you choose the players you don’t need too much tactical intelligence because the players are just playing. I have some principles of life that no one can take from me … I know that the master must guide his wealth. And Christ says that the master must take the horse out of the mud. When the cart gets stuck, the master takes it out, because the servant wants to take it out, but he doesn’t work so hard.
– Gigi Becali, patron FCSB

7 months was out

After being part of the Vână exchange against Mamut and Burlacu, the Croatian was immediately used by FCSB. He played 4 games, suffered an injury, and later everything turned into a real ordeal.

He was injured again, his recovery was extremely difficult and the period of absence from the field was extended even longer than in the case of a ruptured cruciate ligament. He returned to the field only at the beginning of March, after almost a 7-month break, the last time he had played 30 minutes in the CFR – FCSB 4-1 match, in August 2021.

50 thousand euroswas the amount with which CSU Craiova bought Mamut from Croatia, in the fall of 2020
