Then a silly decision (in my opinion perhaps it was stupid) that as made, saw him packing his bags into the freezing Russian winter to play for Spartak Moscow. After that he just disappeared.
Last week he made it clear to the French side that he is staying despite rumours about him moving back to Argentina.
"I want to play for Bordeaux in France, not for another team,” he added. “I read (Estudiantes manager) Diego SIMEONE’s declarations but I repeat that I want to stay at least four or five years at Bordeaux.
Surely I wouldn't want him to leave when he is currently on fire after scoring his fifth goal in four games in Bordeaux 1-0 over St. Etiene. The result meant they are still in second place, 3 points behind Olympic Lyon.
I'm just hoping with this progress he will be considered for a place in the National Team, knowing the fact that we do need an out and out striker.
