Adios! Injured Asdrubal Returns to Spain

 

Sad news from Port today as the club announced that big name Spanish signing Asdrubal Padron has had his contract terminated after picking up a serious injury in training. It seems that the player, who hasn’t looked fully fit since joining Port in January, broke down in training with an injury that could keep him out for up to a year, so the club had no option but to let him go, given his rumoured salary.

From what little we saw of him in a Port shirt, and on Youtube, he looked like he would have been a very useful player at T1 level, but now we will never know. So it seems like Maranhao, who has been on fire during the pre-season friendlies, will get his chance after all. Rumours that he is helping Asdrubal with his packing before driving him to Suvarnabhumi are as yet unconfirmed.
