The new vicepresident of Riverplate Jorge Brito that was elected some days ago made a statement to the press about the situation in which the Argentinean club is going through as he insisted don saying that it is worse than what he initially believed before being confirmed as one of the new head chiefs.
‘’From the economical point, the club is worse than what I thought. The debt that we are currently going through escalates and reaches the 300 million pesos and not what I had initially believed it to be’’.
‘’In the last few weeks there was a huge amount of checks that were emitted and released which turned our economic situation from bad to disastrous’’. Jorge Brito declared at a local Radio station.
Not only is the situation of River plate going bad in the financial side of the club but they are currently located in the bottom spots of the first tournament of the season which concluded with River Plate located at the 17th spot.
River Playe has already tried to boost their current squad sending their newly appointed Sporting Director Enzo Francescoli to England in attempts of signing Diego Lugano from West Bromwich. Diego Lugano has only made 2 appearances so far in this season and he is hoping to make it into the Uruguayan team for the 2014 World Cup but with limited playing time in the Premier League, it would be a wise choice for him to make a move somewhere where he would get more playing time.
Fernando Cavenaghi also stated his desire on making a move back to River Plate as he wants to help out the club he joined and played in some years ago but considering the financial situation that the Argentinean club is going through, it is still not certain if they will be able to sign either Cavenaghi or Lugano.
