Newspapers and media were reporting that Limerick had signed full-back Thibaut Molinatti ahead of the transfer deadline, but it has emerged that the move for the Swedish defender has fallen through due to paperwork issues.
The player himself posted a statement on his Facebook and Twitter pages explaining the failed transfer:
Like some of you may have seen, yesterday I signed a 1 year contract with Limerick FC in the highest league in Ireland. The reason I didn’t post anything was because it wasn’t 100% completed, even though the newspapers and Limericks website published about the transfer.
This morning I got a call that there was a mistake in the paperwork and that it couldn’t be sorted in time since the transfer window had closed.
I was looking forward to this new challenge, but this is how the football world works. A huge disappointment but now it’s about looking forward and keep working hard. New opportunities are gonna show up. Thank you all for the messages, they meant alot🙏🏻 I promise you big things⚽
