140-goal Ranti Martins rejects pay cut
Record man Ranti Martins
The Lagos-born Martins joined Dempo FC in 2004, he is now on the wanted list of all the top teams in India and there have been some interests from abroad.
But he told MTNFootball.com the cash has to be right for him to quit his club.
"I have received offers from Europe, Norway and Ireland to be precise, but I can't leave here for lesser pay all because I want to play in Europe. I am okay here. Now all the top teams in India want my service, what else do I want than to thank God," he said.
At the weekend, the record-breaking striker was again on target in a 2-2 draw away at Mohun Bagan.
Dempo United currently lead the table with 47 points, six points clear of second-placed East Bengal
Martins said his target is now to score past the 200-goal mark in the Indian league.
“I am happy with my record here in India, attaining a legendary feat is not easy in any country. I am the all-time top scorer in history of India league,” he said.
“I have 140 goals in the league so far and I have scored 18 in the continental competitions. I was top scorer last season with 30 goals and I am leading the scorers’ chart this season with 26 goals.
"It is great to have my name written in gold here. I think I can score more than 200.”
