Cavenaghi set to leave Spartak in off season

MOSCOW, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Spartak Moscow have agreed to release Argentine forward Fernando Cavenaghi in the off season, the Russian Premier League club said on Wednesday.

'There are several players the club has decided to axe. One of them is Cavenaghi,' Spartak general director Sergei Shavlo was quoted as saying by the Russian media.

'He is still a young player and has a bright future, therefore we don't want to make life difficult for him as well as the team.'

The 23-year-old striker has struggled to settle in Russia since joining Spartak from River Plate on a five-year, $11.5 million contract in July 2004.

Cavenaghi has scored just nine goals in all competitions for Spartak in 2006 after hitting seven the previous year.

The Argentine said last week that he wanted to leave Russia for Italy or Spain.

In their final match of the year, Spartak beat Sporting 3-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday to finish third in Group B behind Bayern Munich and Inter Milan and secure a spot in the UEFA Cup.
