Norwich City winger Emiliano Buendia has his name all over the Argentine press on Monday. The reason is that once again, he’s talked about his wish to play for his childhood club River Plate one day.
Speaking to Show del Gol (via Olé), Buendia said: “Since I was little I have a dream to play for River. I would like to play a Superclásico with the club’s shirt.”
Buendia has again told the story about the Copa Libertadores final in Madrid, which he attended: “I can’t tell you how I shouted Pity Martinez’s goal at the Bernabéu, I hugged a lot my old man. It was an unforgettable day.”
But Buendia isn’t joining River Plate so soon. Besides being too young to return to Argentina, the player is also pretty happy at Norwich City, where he’s just got promotion to the Premier League.
“I’m living a very happy moment. It’s a dream to have been promoted to the Premier League. I was very surprised about the competitiveness of the category. There are a lot of great teams.”
“It drew a lot of attention that Bielsa has arrived the Second Division of England. There were times when the fans were surprised, there’s a reason why they call him Loco.”
Speaking to La Nacion last week, Buendia had already talked about his wish to stay with the Canaries for the next season, especially for the chance to play in the Premier League.
“Yes, I would love it, it will be a dream. I have a contract. For my taste it is the best league in the world, the most competitive. And it will be a pleasure to do it at Norwich, for being promoted and the affection that people give us,” said the 22-year-old.
