Ricardo Centurión gets his dream move & Boca Juniors get their flawed hero back


Ricardo Centurión, a player who himself admits is difficult to trust, has got his dream move to Boca Juniors after flirting with Serie A

When Ricardo Centurión said, “If I don’t get a transfer to Boca, I’ll retire,” unlike with the empty rhetoric most footballers utter, there was a genuine sense that the ludicrously talented but equally unhinged star could be telling the truth.

Nothing is confirmed yet but after 48 hours in Italy and a successful medical, Centurión is traveling back to Buenos Aires to close a last-minute transfer to Boca from under the nose of Serie A club Genoa.

The soap opera style transfer that has gone back and forth since the end of the Argentinian football season is a fitting episode in the life of a player whose self-destructive streak has undoubtedly held him back from achieving far more.

As part of Racing Club’s exciting group of academy products, Centurión should probably be something of a recognizable name in Europe by now but while former teammates Luciano Vietto and Rodrigo de Paul have been playing on that big stage for a couple of years now, Ricky remains in Argentina (albeit barring a brief loan spell at Genoa in 2013).
