Mercato: Taxiarchis Fountas on a possible departure to the United States?

SC Rapid Vienna was on the pitch this Sunday, February 20, 2022, traveling to SK Sturm Graz. A meeting in which the Greek striker Taxiarchis Fountas did not take part. An absence that raises questions about a possible departure of the player to the United States, but officially justified by health concerns.

Taxiarchis Fountas was absent from SK Rapid’s squad against Sturm Graz on Sunday. Asked about the absence of the Greek on the field, the Sporting Director, Zoran Barisic, explained that his player was just suffering. However, rumors are circulating about a possible departure of the Greek to DC United in MLS. “This cannot be ruled out in principle. But Taxi Fountas has a contract with us until May 31 and if there is anything to report in the meantime, then I will announce it,” he clarified.

Fountas’ contract is about to expire. Rapid could take advantage of this and make a good deal with a move to MLS. “One thing is the money you can and should make and the other thing is that we have our pride too. You can’t buy that with money. He promised me and us that the old Taxi would stay and give his all as long as he played with us. I believe in his character and I guess he will give everything for Rapid,” continued Zoran Barisic.

For now, the management of SK Rapid Vienna maintains the vagueness around the darling player of the supporters. One thing is certain, for the moment, the Greek striker is still under contract with the Greens and Whites of Vienna until the end of May.
