Ramirez 'a prisoner at Bologna'

Sought-after talent Gaston Ramirez complained bitterly at his transfer status. “I feel like a prisoner at Bologna.”

The Uruguayan trequartista impressed last season and is hoping to make the step up to a bigger club.

“I want to play in a side that competes in Europe, as that would be better for my career. I feel like a prisoner at Bologna, as they won't let me go,” snapped Ramirez.

“The club doesn't seem to remember that I didn't complain when I was without a pay cheque for four months.”

The Rossoblu risked bankruptcy this year and were docked three points in the Serie A table due to financial irregularities.

“I am registered with Bologna, but whether I stay there or not will be decided only after we talk face to face in a week's time.”

Ramirez is thought to be of interest to the likes of Roma, Udinese and Villarreal.
