Iturbe 'had to leave Porto'

Hellas Verona starlet Juan Iturbe left Porto because “he had no chance of playing” and had problems with the club hierarchy.

The young Argentine has been a revelation since joining on loan with option to buy and helped newly-promoted Verona to fourth place in Serie A.

“Everyone knows why Iturbe didn’t play at Porto, but he will be the one to tell you as soon as the season comes to an end,” agent Augusto Paraja told Antena 1.

“President Pinto da Costa is one of the best in the world and I have nothing against him, whereas I prefer not to talk about director general Antero Henrique.

“The player will give his response on the field. Iturbe can make the difference at any club and his worth was never in doubt.

“Unfortunately at Porto he had no chance of playing.”

Iturbe is expected to start tonight's game against Inter, click here for a match preview.
