Really well written piece here. Great read on a great player.
Seems like the time for retirements these days.
Juan Roman Riquelme’s retirement, like David Trezeguet’s, seems to have passed by relatively quietly. Shame. Absolutely wonderful player to watch. Riquelme may not have fit in at Barcelona but he’s showed at Villarreal that was one of the best in his position. People may have expected, and wanted, more but I think Riquelme just wanted to play without all the hype. I’m sure he was still worth the price of admission.
