Former Italy international, Dani Osvaldo, hasn’t played since 2016 but there have been many rumors that Diego Armando Maradona will call him for the Argentinean Super League.

Former Italy national team and Juventus footballer, Dani Osvaldo, stopped playing professional football in 2016.

But now that Diego Armando Maradona is coaching Gimnasia in Argentina and there have been some rumors that he’s going to call Osvaldo to the team.

“I hope he doesn’t call me because you can’t say no to Diego,” he stated.

“It would put me in trouble.”

“If he calls me, we’ll see. For now, all I know is that on September 21 I’m playing with Barrio Viejo,” he added.

“My exit from football was a circus,” Osvaldo added.

“Who are you to tell me I can’t smoke? My father?”

“I smoked all my life and I still played for the Italian national team. He was a nefarious technician for Boca, but the rest of my experience at Bombonera was excellent,” he said about Carlos Tevez.
