25. Ramiro Funes Mori - The Beckenbauer of Argentina

Post  SouthernSmugToffee on Thu 10 Sep 2015, 10:47 am

Funes, one of twins born in Mendoza, Argentina, moved with his family to Dallas, Texas at the age of 10 in 2001, gaining fluency in English that would make his transition to England that much easier. He would later play for FC Dallas in America's MLS before transferring back to his homeland with River Plate.

Boasting a cracking left-footed free kick and Tim Cahill-esque heading ability, Funes promised a threat from set pieces while also needing to adapt to the rigours and pace of the Premier League. He would also need to win over doubters like South American football observer, Tim Vickery, who told the BBC on the day of the Argentine's transfer to Everton that Martinez was being reckless in paying so much for a player of whom there were no guarantees would make the grade in England.

Looks like he is getting his debut against Chelsea as Left Back, as he is left footed, with Oviedo, Baines & Galloway all injured

By the way Maureen... FUCK OFF !!... he's not for sale Very Happy

Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori has spoken of the time that Chelsea had the option to sign him, although they eventually opted not to apply for a work permit for the Argentina international. Instead Mori moved to Merseyside on the final day of the recent transfer window and made his debut in the 3-1 win over Jose Mourinho's side on 12 September.

The ex-River Plate centre-back moved to Goodison Park for £9.7m ($15m), according to The Express, but had previously underwent a trial in West London alongside his brother Rogelio. But After making his first appearance in victory over Chelsea, he told reporters that his career could have taken a different path had he moved to Stamford Bridge.

He does some things very well but then makes a cock up that costs us a goal. It will be interesting to see how he gets on under a decent manager.

This has to be bollocks, but I'd bite their hands off for £20m plus.

Holgate, Jags, Williams and Baines for the rest of the season then. No Koeman tactic changes mid-stream.

We need to recall Galloway and Garbutt asap.
