After just 34 days with the club, Shinji Okazaki has left Malaga. This was seen when on Monday with the European Transfer window closing the player left the side. The reason for this is the team had a salary cap and could not free up the wages to accommodate the English Premier League winner. 

Shirts to be refunded 

The Japanese forward signed for the La Liga 2 side just last month and was expected to be a key player this season. Although with the club unable to find a way to fund his wages, his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

Despite the player not featuring for the football team, he was expected to be a fans favourite. The clear evidence of this was 300 shirts were sold with the player's name on the back.

Reports suggest that the club will compensate each of these fans in a move that could cost around €21,000. One of those fans who brought a shirt was a follower of our site, Matt Harrison. He can then let us know if he gets his money back.
The same fan also reported on twitter that the striker had signed with Spanish second division side Almería. These reports are yet to be confirmed, however, and we still await confirmation on his next destination.

Player sad to leave

Meanwhile, the Spanish side clearly had a significant impact on the 33-year-old as he said this upon leaving;

I don't regret anything as the time I've spent here I will never forget it. If one day I have the opportunity to return to Malaga, I will not hesitate.
