City have signed Juan Velasco on a Bosman transfer until the end of the season. No, not the left-leaning Peruvian General who ruled Peru from 1968 to 1975 under the title of “President of the Revolutionary Government, the 30 year-old right back who previously played for Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo.
Truth be told I don’t know much about our new Spanish import other than the clubs he has played for, that he has 4 Spanish caps to his name and has made 279 appearances in La Liga.
I also know that he used to have a wonderful mullet (pictured left), and he should keep Mr Otsemobor on his toes after Matthew Bates’ serious knee injury and subsequent return to Middlesbrough.
Welcome Mr Velasco, I hope you enjoy your time at Carrow Road. Try the cornish pasties. They’re to die for.
