The Second Coming

Written by
An eagerly anticipated announcement was made earlier this morning by Argentina’s Boca Juniors telling the world of PEN that home grown phenomena Jonathan Calleri has returned home for a second stint.
 
The fee is believed to be around the 25M mark which seemed enough to tempt Dutch club Feyenoord into selling. However there are rumours of a buy back clause should Boca decide to sell in the future giving the Dutch club the first option to take him back. Here’s what club manager Venom had to say
 
“We are delighted he has chosen to come home, Jon belongs with Boca, We understood he’s desire to play for a European team and did not stand in he’s way, but now he is back, better than ever. We need more examples of this kind of situation where home grown talents stay with their clubs and help bring titles, joy and a structure to the platform we are aiming to build”
 
 
Camera’s snapped away at a fully packed terminal 4 as the 22 year old arrived at the Ministro Pistarini airport, Security was very tight but we managed to a get a few words from him. Here is what he had to say..
 
“ I am over the moon to be home, Boca Is everything. My culture, Family and heart belongs here, I wouldn’t say it was a mistake to go abroad but rather a valuable experience. I cannot wait to get going, if it was up to me I would go straight to Casa Amarilla, lace up my boots, kiss the grass and start practising. I am home. God is great, thank you.”
 
The xeneizes faithful will no doubt be celebrating the home coming of a local boy who left to chase his ambitions & dreams and has come back a man, Boca will no doubt be looking to Calleri to fill the void of Aboubakar who was instrumental in last year’s promotion and this year’s title serge.
 
Will this mean the rise of a Premiership powerhouse to another level? Can Calleri elevate he’s game to bigger heights and exceed expectation, or will this be a disastrous call for both club and player?
 
Only time will tell…
