Forward Silvio Romero’s dream of playing abroad again came true. He leaves independent and goes to Fortaleza de Brasil.
Independiente was left today without its captain, Silvio Romero, who will go on loan for a year to Fortaleza, from Brazil, directed by the Argentine coach, Juan Pablo Vojvoda, to play the next Copa Libertadores.
The complicated economic situation of Independiente had led to the Cordovan’s interest in moving away from the team that is his top benchmark, scorer and favorite of his fans, and that possibility finally materialized this Thursday.
At first, Romero was wanted by Ceará, who finished eleventh in the last Brasileirao and therefore will play this year’s Copa Sudamericana.
But the Cordovan Vojvoda, former technical director of “his” Newell’s Old Boys, Defense and Justice, Huracán, Talleres, from Córdoba and Unión La Calera, from Chile, moved quickly, alerted the directors of Fortaleza and they ended up taking him to reinforce with goals against the Brazilian north team.
The former Lanús, who scored 10 goals in the last semester, was a key man for the new coach, Eduardo Domínguez, who tried to convince him to stay but was unsuccessful.
