An Argentine, among the worst reinforcements in the history of the Premier League


The English portal Daily Mail posted a List of the 20 worst reinforcements in the history of the Premier League. The Argentine who appears within the controversial payroll is Daniel Osvaldo, the former Southampton striker.

Osvaldo joined “Los Santos” in August 2013, coming from the Rome of Italy in exchange for 15 million euros. However, its performance was discreet, with hardly 13 games played and three goals, one of the more important was the one who turned him to Manchester City in a 1-1 tie. However, his acts of indiscipline excelled at sports.

In early 2014, where the former Boca Juniors striker received a three-date suspension and a £ 40,000 fine by decision of the Football Association (highest body in English football) following a "Violent conduct" after a fight with the goalkeeping coach from Newcastle.

It wasn't the only fact which involved Danistone with an act of indiscipline. Southampton, directed then for the Argentine Mauricio Pochettino, applied another suspension Osvaldo after a altercation with his partner José Fonte in training.

prompting his departure on loan to Juventus from Italy.
