Fans say goodbye to the “legend” by uploading funny videos.
“Spartak” said goodbye to one of its most mysterious legionnaires – Malcolm Badu… This information was confirmed to the Championship by the head of the club’s communications department Anton Fetisov… According to him, the agreement was terminated by mutual agreement.
Badu leaves Spartak without playing a single match in the RPL. Its acquisition in the summer of 2019 initially raised questions, but now it has finally become clear that Leonid Fedun I just threw 75 thousand euros away. This is exactly the amount, according to Transfermarkt.ru, the Moscow club paid Wolfsburg.

What could a German with Ghanaian roots give “Spartak”? The answer to this question must be sought in an interview with the former CEO of the club. Thomas Zorn and ex-head coach of red and white Oleg Kononov, at which Malcolm’s transfer took place.
“Badu moved to Spartak almost free of charge, for a symbolic compensation, which we agreed with Wolfsburg. I want to emphasize that the signing of the contract took place without deducting any agency commissions and lifting fees to the player himself. Badu is a product of the training system of a strong German Bundesliga club, was called up to the German youth national team of various ages, participated in its composition in the World Championship among teams under 20 in 2017. He proved himself at the training camp of “Spartak” in Austria, made a good impression on the coaching staff. Badu will add rotation to the team on the flanks, ”Zorn told Spartak’s press service after the transfer was made.

There were no meaningful comments from the head coach about Bud at all. But Fedun, like Zorn earlier, confirmed that “Kononov likes the guy.” Malcolm was supposed to become “an alternative for Nikolai Rasskazov and Andrey Yeshchenko.” The first competitor of the German is no longer in Spartak, and the second has played less than 200 minutes in the RPL this season.
What Badu is has remained a mystery to a wide range of fans. In the first part of the 2019/2020 season, Malcolm was seven times included in Spartak’s application for RPL matches, but never entered the field. After that, the coaches of the first team remembered him only at the training camp. Badu’s game was seen only by those who followed the matches of the red-white farm club in the FNL. In the second-tier Russian division, Malcolm spent 24 games in the positions of defender and midfielder in a year and a half. In August 2020, he scored his only goal against Irtysh. However, this season FNL Badu is ranked in the top 5 best players of Spartak-2 according to InStat rating. For example, he has good dribble statistics: 3.2 dribbles with 5.3 dribbling attempts in 90 minutes.

However, Malcolm has already turned into a human meme. Funny videos with the participation of Badu appeared on social networks, where he either cannot hit the ball, then he screams from the injection.
Naturally, today Badu’s departure from Spartak did not go unnoticed by Internet comedians. They say goodbye to the “legend”.
Badu confessed that he was a little offended by ridicule, and promised – you’ll see me again! Well, if this happens, it is clearly not in our championship. The most vivid memory of Malcolm in Russia: the story of how, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Badu, Andrea Romagnoli and Nikoloz Kutateladze crossed the border with Finland on bicycles.
