Hoy su carta ya no vale los 15 millones de euros que pagó el Shakhtar Donetsk en el verano de 2007 al Olympiakos, tras el declive de su carrera está tasado en sólo 2,5 millones de euros – y eso que en un momento valía todavía menos – a sus 27 años, edad dónde debería tener una madurez futbolística que lo hiciera estar en el mejor momento de su carrera, pero con él ha sucedido todo lo contrario.
