AFTER the weekend’s tantalising teaser mention of a Colombian football club named after former Newcastle striker Faustino Asprilla, commentor David has shed some light.
The Colombian visitor left Goaltastic a message saying that at present Club Athletico Faustino Asprilla, which appears to be a newly established set-up in Asprilla’s hometown Tulua, is currently an amateur side.
It is likely it will remain so until at least 2012 as there is no formal relegation and promotion from the professional leagues in th South American nation – so don’t expect headlines about a Copa Libertadores run for a while yet.
The club is also currently recruiting players, with a chance to try-out held last month – I’m guessing Tino Asprilla himself made the cut.
Thanks David – any more information anyone has, please leave a comment.
