Unbridled optimism

In the midst of the gloom of a terrible start to the season, Racing have heard some positive talking this week. On Monday, new signing Javier Cámpora arrived from Mexico, amid hopes from the fans that he could be the team’s saviour, and got straight down to talking up their chances. ‘My dream is to play for a big team and to come to Buenos Aires,’ Cámpora told reporters. ‘I know Racing are in a difficult situation, but I’ve always been an optimist. I believe that, in the long or the short term, things are going to work out.’ ‘In the long or the short term’? OK, so maybe he’s hedging his bets a little…

Cámpora came through the youth ranks at Rosario Central before moving to Fénix, Deportes Concepción of Chile and then to Tiro Federal, where he finished the 2005 Apertura as top scorer in B Nacional. His first taste of top-flight football was in Mexico, where he’s just spent two years, playing first for Cruz Azul and then for Jaguares de Chiapas. But it’s not a lot of experience. ‘I played three matches of 90 minutes in Mexico, and I felt good enough,’ he continued, demonstrating that optimism once again. He hopes to play against Independiente in the clásico this weekend. Good luck Javier. Oh, you won’t need any…
