  1. This is a serious warning to Argentinian football and young players……,.but will they learn
    …….?????………MLS is the most likely destination for most of the Argentinian young stars…….

  2. Game Over Pity for Pity Martinez; AFA have to improved their domestic leaque and make it more competitive and win the Copa Liberdatores, this can make the young talents grow and shine and attract elite clubs to hire… Unless it is okay and happy to sell the youngs one with small tag price to save the pockets

    • case study of how to kill career by going to MLS. The guy was pretty good & had a chance 2 years back to seal the left flank for NT. Worried for Barco & Pavon( atleast he is on loan) . Crazy amount of talented youngsters are going there – Alvaro Barreal , Julian Carranza , Matias Pellegrini are all legit talent & sealed recent MLS deals . Almendra is also being targeted by LA .
      I can understand Insua, Piatti, Gaitan, or even Higuain deciding MLS. Nice place to retire & some good dollars , relatively closer to home & spanish crowd . But clubs should not sacrifice real good youngsters for quick dollars. Very bad trend.
      While Pity didnt do much in Atlanta , there was transitions & instability also. He should have waited & made 1 attempt for Europe ( atleast mid tier club in Serie a or la liga )

    • I know right. I hope he leaves from there at the end of his career to play somewhere half respectable. Even if it’s just Argentina or a second division team in the top five. But it’s a lost cause. There’s no getting him back from this. We can forget about him.
