The Argentine player landed at Fiumicino airport in the afternoon welcomed by hundreds of cheering fans.
When he left Palermo to join PSG, Italy had lost a football teacher, a boy with a refined foot and a velvety touch. His years in France have been erratic. Great games and moments of discouragement. His message today to the Parisian contains a period of mixed feelings and missed opportunities.
“I wanted to give you more but all the roads lead to Rome,” Pastore said.
Now there is a new adventure in front of the Argentine champion. The Italian capital is ready to admire his plays and his tactical wisdom. Javier Pastore is a talented painter, a master in brushing amazing traits on the green canvas of the playground.
Di Francesco wanted him for his ability to create offensive opportunities. In past years, Pastore has played as a left midfielder in a tactical scheme practically specular to that of the Giallorossi. The Argentine will also delight lovers of poetic football playing behind Dzeko. The 29-year-old is happy to have returned to Italy, the country that had welcomed him when he was a youngster converting him into a champion.
Javier Pastore returns to the land where football is sacred, in the city where this sport is rooted in the bowels of the residents.
