Pires To Boca Juniors?

11 04 2009


Let’s not start to ring the bell and start to make this a done deal.  He was just talking about his eventual desire to play for Boca Juniors before he retires.  He was talking about an eventual reunion with former Villarreal teammate Juan Román Riquelme.  In an interview with radio show Dos de Punta on FM Latina.  Pires talked about his desire of playing on the left alongside his former teammate and some of the legendary Boca giants of the past 15 years.

“I want to play in La Bombonera.  I swear.  Everytime I see a Boca match, I see how the people push their team.  I know of Palermo, Palacio, Figueroa.  But before I retire I would like to play at Boca with Riquelme.  Right now he is the Argentine footballer I like the most.”

Pires talked about his admiration for Riquelme, whom he was a teammate of for two seasons until his falling out with coach Manuel Pellegrini left him on the outs and saw him head back to his beloved Xeneize.  Maybe behind Riquelme Boca could also get Gennaro Gattuso, another player that expressed his desire to head south to play out his final days.
