In what you feel is likely to be the last chapter in his long and nomadic playing career, ex-Barcelona, Real Madrid and River Plate striker Javier Saviola has signed on for FC Ordina of Andorra.

The 34-year-old actually retired from football back after saying his goodbyes at River Plate in January but was tempted back through a mutual friend of Ordina’s club president.

Saviola duly signed up on a ‘player-assistant manager’ deal but was left on the bench for the first game of the season which Ordina lost 1-0 against Lusitans – one of just eight teams in the Andorran Primera Divisio.

Ordina have a maximum stadium capacity of 1,500, which isn’t actually too shabby once you realise that the entire population of Andorra could comfortably fit inside the Camp Nou.

    Watching that River Plate team with Saviola, Aimar, Angel & Ortega rip the opposition apart was always worth staying up late for. Those Boca/River SuperClasico’s were some of the best attacking football matches I’ve ever seen.

    Time to reinstall CM 00/01, methinks…
