Club Athletico Faustino Asprilla

ALWAYS a fans’ favourite at Newcastle – even for fans of other teams – Faustino Asprilla was in attendence at St James’ Park for the stunning 4-4 draw with Arsenal, and given a mention on last night’s Match of the Day.
And it was also mentioned that the retired Colombian striker is now the proud owner of a lower league team in his home country – which he has renamed Club Athletico Faustino Asprilla in his own honour!
Now I can find nothing about this on the Internets to confirm or deny this – although I very much hope it is true – but I did find out that Asprilla is nicknamed The Octopus in Colombia “for his voracious appetite,” so that’s something I guess.
If you can shed some light on Club Athletico Faustino Asprilla, leave a comment below!
