Dario Conca, Dario…Conca, struggling to place the name? Allow us to refresh your memory.
Despite no-one really knowing who the bloody bejesus he is, Conca is now the third highest-paid player in world football (behind the ‘big two’, Messi and Ron) courtesy of Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande, who snapped him up on a mammoth contract from Fluminese a week or so ago.
Yeah, that Dario Conca.
Any road up, he made his bow for the ‘Chinese Chelsea’ last night, coming on for the last 25 minutes against Nanchang and scoring a really underwhelming, heavily-deflected goal that bobbled in off a defender’s face – a goal that has subsequently been labelled as ‘fantastic’ by the Guangzhou PR department…
Only another 60 of those this season and he’ll begin to pay for himself.
