lol, I thought you had some hot gossip on a gay relationship between the two .Bielsa - Riquelme A Love Story
Nah, I totally agree with you, hes a classy player. Hes not exactly young either (23), so the excuse for Saviola's exclusion doesnt apply here. I hate to say it, but I think his absence from european football has something to do with Bielsa's reluctance to include him. At least Ortega has played in Europe for a spell before returning to Argentina. Riquelme would also probably displace Veron, in the position just behind the attack? Veron is the linchpin of the NT and Riquelme might disrupt the current team tactics.
I wouldnt go as far to say hes a better player than Zidane though. Zidane is a very experienced team player who has played at every level. Riquelme still has some way to go.
I heard that the NT will play Tunisia in a friendly on the 22nd may. Last chance for Riquelme?
