Tino Returns! (Or Does He?)
Published : 27 Feb 2013 12:23:20
Ex-Newcastle United striker Faustino Asprilla claims he is poised to return to St James' Park as a youth team coach.
Asprilla enjoyed a two-spell at the Magpies after joining from Parma in 1996 and has revealed he is set take up his new role in March.
The 43-year-old also confirmed he hopes to help the club pick up the best talent from his native Colombia. He told Radio Antena 2: “Some teams in England are going after the Spaniards, so I want Newcastle to fix their eyes on Colombian talent.”
The strange thing is, Newcastle United have yet to confirm this, and you would have expected them to have sent out a press release.
I'd 'hang fire' on this story, until they do.
Tino has had a 'colourful' career - what with guns, porn stars, damage to public transport, and asking a certain club chairman if he "had a big knob".
Yep ... he's a strange one!
