Moscow, Russia – Vagner Love is set to return to CSKA Moscow after the Brazilian striker announced that he will sign a three-and-a-half year deal with the Russian club.
Love played for CSKA between 2004 and 2011, making 244 appearances and scoring 117 goals over that span. Before returning to Brazil in late 2011, he claimed two Russian league titles (2005 and 2006), five Russian Cups (2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2011) and the UEFA Cup in 2005.
"I'm happy to come back home," Vagner told Sport-Express Daily. "I want to start practicing as soon as possible to continue scoring as I did in previous years and to help my team to win again.
"I can assure CSKA supporters that I will never again ask the club chiefs to release me. I will go back only after CSKA president will tell me: 'It's enough, Vagner'."
