Can someone please tell me where Asprilla will be going at the end of the season. I think he should be back in the international stage up front with Angel or Castillo. Palmeiras have wasted his talent..

el tino days in great clubs are over!

He does not even appears on the bench of palmeiras (copa lib or local Liga).

On the other hand, he should start in humble club and prove he is the man for the nats...

other wise he is ' a rotten orange' in a good sack!

I agree that el Tino is not finished and a prove of that are the rumours linking him to a premiership side. I don't know that it is, but i have no doubts that in England he is well known as a world class

I Wish I Wasn't Black - Asprilla

Former Parma and Newcastle striker Faustino Aspirilla is likely to cause more controversy after sensationally insisting that he would prefer to be ‘white rather than black.’

The Colombian hit-man has been making all the wrong headlines over the last couple of years and he is likely to find himself deeper in the mire after his latest ranting and raving.

Asprilla has claimed that he would prefer it if his skin complexion was of a lighter tone because he believes that being a black man makes him the victim of much stereotype.

“I want to stop being a black man,” Asprilla informed La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

“I have reached the conclusion that the colour of my skin has conditioned other people to think bad things of me.

“I believe if I was a white man most of my mistakes would go un-noticed. I don’t mind being black, but it causes me certain problems.”

Asprilla spent four years in Serie A with Parma, making 84 appearances and scoring 25 goals. He will always be remembered for his silky skills and dazzling footwork.

However, he has also been noticed for all the wrong reasons. In 2000, for example, he was accused of firing a handgun after a weekend of drinking.

His latest rambling, then, is likely to stir up even more controversy.
