Cristian ANSALDI, Gio SIMEONE score in Serie A


Cristian ANSALDI and Giovani SIMEONE both scored in Serie A on Saturday.

Mauro ICARDI wasn’t the only Argentinian to score after the international break in Serie A. Cristian ANSALDI scored for Torino in their 4-0 away victory to Cagliari. The Argentina international scored goal number three of the match, his first goal of the season. Fellow Argentina international Nicolas BURDISSO also started the match for Torino.

It’s been a heartbreaking month for not only the footballing world but more specifically Fiorentina following the tragic passing of their captain Davide ASTORI. Former Fiorentina captain Gabriel BATISTUTA recently visited his old club when he attended a training session.

One of the players BATISTUTA spoke with was the club’s current number 9, the son of a former Argentina team mate of his, Giovani SIMEONE. Batigol reportedly told Gio:

“Don’t worry, sooner or later a goal will come and everything will return to normal. Trust in Florence, if you understand the city then it will give you a big helping hand.”

Well, BATISTUTA’s words must have helped because it took SIMEONE just three minutes before he found the back of the net. After going 660 minutes without scoring, Giovani with a poacher like finish from inside the area gave Fiorentina a reason to smile.

  1. can play with both feet.we need him in the right and bustos as sub with him we have an awesome defence.but sampaoli won’t call him ,the list is filled with losers biglia banega and very old mascherano why don’t we get rid of them plus higuen i don’t know.

  2. May I ask why is Ansaldi not in Sampaoli’s radar? Also… i hope the assistant coach wasn’t let go because he wanted Higuain Masch and other fossils to be kicked out of the team?

        • No he isn’t, not in my opinion anyway. Ansaldi is fast, skillful, very attack minded and quite versatile but his problem is that he rarely stays fit. If he does manage to stay fit he should definitely be considered because he ticks all the boxes and he’s the type of player that Sampaoli is looking for.
