Argentinian Journalist Goes Above And Beyond To Prove His De Rossi Fitness Point

Argentinian Journalist Goes Above And Beyond To Prove His De Rossi Fitness Point

A journalist refusing to back down from his hot take.

There was an infamous episode during Eoin Hand's reign as Republic of Ireland manager when a journalist, John O'Shea, was challenged on his constant criticism of Mick McCarthy's pace. It came that a £50 bet was placed on a race between the sportswriter and the Irish centre-half.

McCarthy went on to beat him twice and Hand put the money towards the player's drinking kitty.

In Argentina right now, there is much debate around the arrival of Italian Daniele De Rossi to Boca Juniors. The 35-year-old is set to leave Roma after 18 years and 459 games. One man is adamant this signing is a mistake by the Copa Libertadores club. Horacio Pagani is convinced it's a costly move.

The journalist was particularly critical of the Italian's "physical state".
