Fresh from pacing Argentina to a World Cup qualifying win over Bolivia, outcast Villarreal playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme revealed that he is busy engineering a return to Boca Juniors.
The superstar #10 is essentially persona non grata with the Yellow Submarines, but remains a Bombonera hero after leading the team to a Copa Libertadores crown while on loan last season.
“I know that I will return to play with Boca Juniors, be it tomorrow, or within five months after my contract with Villarreal runs out,” Riquelme told Spanish sports daily Marca.
“We’re still talking about the same things, and in reality I hope that the issues will be resolved quickly.”
