Just a wee blogglet…
Two Argentines got themselves in a spot of bother this week and now we know why.
Roma forward Dani Osvaldo punched team-mate (and fellow countryman) Erik Lamela in the changing rooms following their loss against Udinese.
There was a minor confrontation on the pitch after Lamela failed to pass for Osvaldo, but the heated stuff continued behind closed doors.
Back in the dressing room, Osvaldo approached the former River Plate playmaker and said:
“I am better than you; we’re not at River here, when I speak to you, you must respond”
Then – and all of this is according to El Confidencial – Lamela responded by telling Osvaldo to:
“Shut your mouth. You’re no Maradona”
It was at this point that Osvald0 – who has elected to play for Italy following consistent snubs from Argentina – struck the youngster in the face and the two had to be separated by club officials.
I must confess, Osvaldo comes off as a bit of a bell-end.
