On Wednesday evening, Panathinaikos released this following statement:

“Panathinaikos FC announces the arrival of French footballer Yohan Mollo. He has signed a two-year contract.”

Mollo, 30, shared his feelings from the transfer:

“I am very happy to become a member of the Panathinaikos family. I hope to see a lot of people at the stadium, because I can promise that we will see positive things happen while we win matches. I urge Panathinaikos supporters to sit comfortably in their seats as they will see a different approach to the game from me. I chose Panathinaikos because of the project, not the money. I know that this is an historic club with plenty of titles. I am here to help the team and assist the young players in developing.”

Mollo arrives as a free agent after he left Sochaux this summer. The French attacking midfielder only joined Sochaux in January having departed Krylya Sovetov Samara midway through the 2018/2019 campaign.

In Russia, Mollo had previously made a name for himself between August 2015 and January 2017 with Krylya Sovetov, but his subsequent transfer to Zenit Saint Petersburg was the start of a challenging period. After a handful of scandals with Zenit, Mollo moved to Fulham in August 2017, however his fortunes didn’t improve. Mollo has since played for Al-Rayyan, Krylya Sovetov again and Sochaux as he struggled to find any consistency. He will be hoping to give his career a well-needed boost in Athens.
