ClaretandHugh reported David Sullivan as saying: “We’d love to sign him, but he’s indicated as recently as the Argentina friendly at Upton Park he’s not interested in coming.”

“I don’t know when, but I will return home. I’ve been in Europe for many years and I need my family – I miss my father, my mother and my brother.
“I can’t complain as everyone has treated me well, but my mentality is Argentine and my desire is to go back to Buenos Aires.
