Promise For The Future

Newell's Old Boys have announced the signing of three players from the Youth ranks to full professional contracts. More are expected before the end of the week. It is just a shame that it took the loss of Juan Manuel Cobelli to teach the current administration that signing players before they make an impression with the senior side might be a good idea.

Defender Jonathan Valle, 18, played in one match for the senior side, against Olimpo. Midfielder Guillermo Ferracuti, 19, has played in three. Enzo Beloso, 17, yet to make his debut with Newell's, but plays for Argentina's U-17 team.

Goalkeeper Dilan Nicoletti, son of Waldemar Nicoletti who played for Newell's first championship team in 1974, is also expected to be signed. A few other names were mentioned, but, frankly, my Spanish wasn't up to the task, and Babelfish translation only made things muddier.
