Di Santa Confirmed For Argentina

Argentina’s schedule prior to the start of the 2014 World Cup will see them locking horns with Trinidad and Tobago only 1 week before the start of the tournament and Alejandro Sabella came up with a few surprises after announcing his provisional 30 man squad which included Franco Di Santo while Carlos Tevez is not in the list.


Werder Bremen chief executive and president Klaus-Dieter Fischer has announced that he will step down from his post at the end of the season in what will be the start of a new era for the club.

Werder Bremen have been one of the top teams in the Bundesliga for several years and Klaus-Dieter Fischer has played a huge role in making them into this position. The 73-year-old said that he has taken this decision due to personal reasons. He says that the job he has done at Werder Bremen has not only helped him at professional level, but also make his life better at a personal level as well.


While Bayern Munich continue topping the Bundesliga as they were already crowned as the champions of the German league despite still having more than 6 matches left to be played. The numerical advantage that Bayern Munich has over their nearest rivals, Borussia Dortmund is so huge that Pep Guardiola and his men are safe to say that they will be lifting the league trophy no matter what happens in the remainder of the season.

Di Santo enjoying his time

Franco Di Santo who was a free transfer from Wigan Athletic to Werder Bremen says that he is enjoying his time at the club and in a recent interview he was asked how he feels after coming back from the injury and playing the first round to which he said that it is always a pleasure to play for Werder Bremen especially when you are coming back from an injury. He has been in and out of the starting eleven after having suffered from quite a lot of injuries recently.


Werder Bremen continues to show interest on Domenico Berardi and Luca Marrone of Juventus. Marco Motta is another player on the radar of the German club as the 27 years old player has not played a starting role for the head coach Antonio Conte and there is a big possibility that he will be leaving the club either in this transfer window or a few months’ time in the summer.


Werder Bremen has confirmed that they are waiting to hear if Kevin de Bruyne will be made available for loan in January.

"Kevin de Bruyne's agent is aware of our interest in his services. I will be getting to know if there is a chance to re-sign Kevin de Bruyne on loan for our club," general manager Thomas Eichin told Kreiszeitung Syke.

"If this is possible, we will have to wait and see if such a deal can be really worked out. Everyone at Werder Bremen knows all about the quality of Kevin de Bruyne."


Werder Bremen recently signed Argentine striker Franco di Santo on a free transfer. The striker decided not to extend his contract with the championship club Wigan athletic. He came to England in 2008 after signing for Chelsea for £ 3 million.

However, he found first-team opportunities limited at Chelsea. This led to his move to Blackburn Rovers on a loan deal, and he thrived during this loan spell. Despite this, he was unable to establish himself as a first-team regular and he was sold to Wigan for £ 3 million a few seasons ago.

Swansea not looking at Franco di Santo

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has rubbished claims that Wigan Athletic striker Franco di Santo could be heading to the Liberty Stadium in the summer transfer window, adding that the club was working towards finding a different kind of player and that the Argentine is not someone they are interested in.

Premiership title football tips

The debate about who will win next season’s Premier League – not to mention the football betting interest – started more or less as soon as the dust had settled on Manchester United’s triumph. However putting bets on it is particularly hard to do with real accuracy this summer, because there has been so much upheaval at the three top clubs – most notably the retirement of Ferguson at United.


Franco di Santo has said that he wants to stay at Wigan Athletic. Santo’s contract is going to expire at the end of the ongoing season and it’s unclear whether Wigan management is interested in giving him a contract extension or not. However, Santo has made his intentions clear.

Santo has been a part of Wigan Athletic since the last two and half years. He has performed quite well during his tenure at Wigan so far.

In the last season, Wigan was in the danger of being relegated. It was Santo who had played a major role in saving them from that. He had found the net in the vital matches towards the end of the season and had helped Wigan in securing important points.

Santo had a very good start in this season as well. He was looking in brilliant nick in the first half of the season, but, after January, his form has dipped down. He has not found the net even once in the last couple of months.

Santo has scored only five goals in the ongoing Premier League.

There have been a few reports that the Italian Serie A side Lazio is interested in signing Santo. According to an Italian newspaper, the president of Lazio Claudio Lotito is quite impressed with Santo and he wants to buy him.

When asked about his future plans, Santo said, “I want to stay here at Wigan. I love playing in Wigan shirt and I don’t want to join any other club. Let’s see what happens in the next few months. Hopefully, I will get a contract extension.”

“This season has been decent for us. We are in the final 4 of the FA Cup and we are desperate to win this competition.”

“In league, we could have done better. We lost too many games in the first half of the season and that pushed us back. Now, we should try to finish the season well.”
