After spending a few years in retirement, Daniel Osvaldo decided to go back to playing football at Banfield, because his father is a fan.
However, repeated injuries were the cause that the 34-year-old forward could only see 61 minutes on the field of play with the Drill jersey.
His reappearance was made precisely against River in the defeat of his team 1-0 at the Monumental, entering the 28 of the second act in place of Jesús Dátolo.
Surprisingly, for few, once the Argentine championship was over and the delay due to the pandemic caused the ex-Boca to disappear from virtual training without prior notice, causing the club in southern Buenos Aires to make the decision to separate him from the squad and, later , its untying.
Javier Sanguinetti, brand new coach of Banfield, spoke in “Puro Fútbol” in Late 931 on the subject and commented: “I was surprised that Osvaldo wants to leave, I had talked a lot with him and he had not had so many minutes due to the injuries. Perhaps this was not what he wanted and he decided to leave.”
“At the beginning Osvaldo connected to training by ‘zoom’, from one day to the next he stopped connecting and we did not know anything about him. Later we knew that he wanted to go,” said the technical director.
