After seven years in the Giallorossi jersey Abel Balbo has left the Italian Capital for Boca Juniors.


The former Argentine international said goodbye to his Roma teammates today and emptied his locker at the Trigoria training ground.


Balbo, who was once captain of the team and has also featured for Udinese and Fiorentina, will fly out to South America at the weekend in order to sign a new deal with Boca Juniors.


The 35-year-old striker has already rescinded his contract with Roma, which was originally set to expire in June.


He’ll be able to play in the Copa Libertadores with his new side and may make his debut on April 24.

Well, it's a real shame that Roma didn't let him go last summer when he would have been able to play all season. He's been sitting in tribuna for months. If he wants to continue playing and they knew they weren't going to use him, what was the point of not selling him when Boca was interested months ago. That was really creepy of the club to do that.

Don´t forget his Parma days!!!:proud:
I liked him very much! Together with Crespo, Chiesa and Asprilla they were one of the best attack in Serie A these times... :rolleyes:

Best wishes for the future and I hope he could play now more!
