Osvaldo to return with Maradona?

Former Roma and Italy striker Dani Osvaldo could be set for a return to football with Diego Maradona’s Gimnasia La Plata.

Osvaldo has been out of football since retiring in 2016, but ANSA claims he is close to a sensational comeback in his native Argentina.

That is because Gimnasia, now under the guidance of Maradona, are on the lookout for a new centre-forward to replace the injured Lautaro Chavez.

The 33-year-old also played for the likes of Fiorentina, Southampton, Juventus and Inter, while scoring four goals in 14 caps for Italy.

Despite his undoubted ability, he was arguably more known for his off-field antics and left football to become a rock musician.
