Jonathan Calleri just can’t spend a week without having rumours about this future.
After all the saga he’s been through in the past few months, the player even managed to get some game time at West Ham. But after being sent back to the bench, it’s time to have speculation of a departure reawakened.
The player was interviewed by the Argentine Radio show Perros De La Calle on Wednesday, and spoke a bit about his short time at Boca Juniors.
During the interview, he mentioned how much he’d like to go back to Argentine and play at his former club.
“I’d like to return to Boca tomorrow,” said Calleri (via Olé). “Since I arrived there, everything was very intense, but always a beautiful pressure. Boca was the top of my career.”
He’s obviously just being overly emotional there. A return to South America would not just be bad for his career, but also for the investors who paid good money for him.
When still at Boca, he was bought for €11m by a group of agents who had him signed for Uruguayan side Maldonado and now keep loaning him out until getting a lucrative deal.
It was first São Paulo and now West Ham, but Calleri still seems far from convincing he’s worth all that money.
