Latics lead hunt for South American ace..


Recommended Posts

INJURED Gretna star Fabian Yantorno will quit the crisis-club this week – with Oldham Athletic heading the queue for his signature.

 

The talented South American playmaker has not kicked a ball for two months after suffering knee ligament damage but Gretna will not stand in his way – because the skint Borderers can’t afford to pay for his rehab treatment.

 

Yantorno needs specialist care as he begins the road back to fitness but he has not been short of offers from clubs who are keen to secure his services for next season after doctors told him he would make a complete recovery.

 

The 25-year-old forward - signed last summer from Mirimar Misiones in his native Uruguay - could also be a target for his old gaffer Davie Irons, now at Morton.

 

Gretna caretaker boss Mick Wadsworth said: “We can not give Fabian the care he needs. The chances of him signing next year after what has happened at the club were non-existent anyway.”

 

Gretna’s other foreign stars Aurelien Collin and Mickael Buscher will have their contracts ripped up by the club tomorrow as both have asked to leave.

 

Central defender Collin has already been linked with Barnsley.

 

Players are awaiting a decision from FIFA on whether they can move outside of the transfer window – a move which could see central defender Chris Innes also quit this week.

 

Uncertainty over Gretna’s future also saw highly-regarded physio Kenny Crichton leave following yesterday’s 3-0 defeat to Celtic after he was snapped up by SPL rivals Falkirk, while award-winning groundsman Paul Barnett has also left the club which was plunged into administration two weeks ago.

Maybe we're going for the 'workplace with highest number of staff injured at one time' world record.

Is this a lie as well? I just don't know who to believe any more.

 

this is difficult. as someone says how can he be an ace with only 2 goals in 21 games or whatever? but then again you have to realise he has been playing in a team who have spent all season bottom of the league, and as he is classed as a playmaker i wouldnt say we should be expecting him to have a strike rate of 1 in 2.

 

off the face of that artical (nothing more) i would say this would be a very good signing.

Knowing Oldham's luck, we probably wouldn't get a work permit for him on the grounds that some Home Office faceless git (with a big desk and an even bigger salary wedge) deems Scotland and the Premiership to have different rules to the little clubs.

 

KEEP THE FAITH

Oldham lead the hunt, which means no other clubs are interested then! :grin:

 

2 goals in 21 appearances, wouldn't go as far calling him an "ace".

 

Actually 4 in 24 in SPL and several MOM awards before his injury...a reasonable return for a midfielder in a struggling team. According to the Gretna FC site he has already been released from his contract.

 

Mick Wadsworth said that another club would have come in for him anyway because his form was fantastic before his injury.

 

Might be worth a gamble as the medics have said he will make a full recovery.

I was just going off what SoccerBase says, and I was misinformed that he was a striker, he actually sounds pretty good.

Hmmm, :censored: Jobsworth as Director of Football - appointed due to TTA reading OWTB and seein that many have called for a "more experienced" person to help Shez out?

 

Jobsworth is certainly more experienced - at never having achieved anything :lol:
