'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Peruvian Trumpeteer: End of an era

A sad day for English football as our finest import from Peru (and anywhere really) heads back to South America. Following two spells with us, time at Villa and West Ham, as well as an ill-fated time over in Greece with Larissa, our former diminutive right winger is set to sign for Universitario back in his homeland. Nobby himself said:

'My signing happens thanks to the friendship I have with Juan Reynoso and the seriousness of Universitario officials.

I like ambitious, serious projects and Universitario are heading that way. I am also excited about playing in the Copa Libertadores this year and because I know Juan (Reynoso) very well and I know he will be good for the club.

My idea is to play two years for Universitario, win the local league and do a good job in the Copa Libertadores. Then, I will probably retire by playing at the Estadio Monumental (Universitario's home stadium).

Then I will study to be a coach, probably in Argentina.'

The last statement is probably the most commanding - hopefully we may see a Ketsbaia / Nobby dream team calling the Toon!

Was a great player, although I wasn't keen on the way he left Villa, he still left some good memories and as you say, was a great import to English footie!
