There’ll be much more detail on Friday evening’s match between Huracán and Colón – a 2-1 win for the visitors – after the weekend, but first, a curiosity photo, and an offer for any readers of very blurry German to come forward. Sitting two rows in front of a prestigious panel of journalists comprised of myself, Joel Richards and Jonathan Wilson at the match was former Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen and Fenerbahçe (among others) manager Christoph Daum, who appeared with a couple of associates to be on a scouting mission. Read on for the photo…
One of the players the men were clearly paying attention to was 19-year-old Huracán forward Luciano Nieto, and I was able to get this photograph (using a crappy compact camera’s digital zoom, since I’m afraid to take my decent camera into the stadia here) of Daum’s right-hand man’s notes. If anyone can read German, and take a guess at what this says, please leave a comment or send an email via the contact page.
Please note the photo is © me. Feel free to link back to this page, but don’t reproduce it anywhere. Ta.
