Emiliano Insua – The Argentine has begun to play more regularly under new manager Ünder Bulent, and started Galatasaray’s 3-2 victory over Genclerbirli at the weekend. Insua has also been called up to Argentina’s national team by manager Sergio Batista for the friendlies against Nigeria and Poland next month. Insua wrote on his facebook page that he is delighted with the news:
“Very happy with the call to the National Team for the games of 1 and 4 of June. Re proud to wear the colours of my country and with energy and expectations to make things right. Thanks everyone.”
Insua got his first cap for Argentina under Diego Maradona in 2009.
Loan Round Up – With Aquilani, Insua, El Zhar and Degen, the only players now out on loan, I think it is a good time to look back at the rest of the players who went out on loan this campaign and see how well they did. For Daniel Ayala, it seems to have been a very beneficial experience after having played in the first team for both Hull and Derby County. The experience would have also been good for Dani Pacheco who contributed two goals to Norwich City getting promoted to the Premier League. Perhaps he maybe part of the Canaries’ plans next season too?
For Nathan Eccleston and David Amoo though, their loan spells were not as useful. Eccleston got a lot more game time than Amoo but both had to suffer through long spells on the bench. It would be better served for us to put them out on loan to clubs who need them for the first team next time or otherwise it really is pointless sending them out to other clubs at all.
