It's been quite a 24 hours for Mr. Renaissance, Juan Roman Riquelme. First he's amazing in the two-legged Copa Libertadores final, scores three times, and was named most valuable player of the final. Villarreal then comes out publicly and says that Riquelme will not be playing for them next season.
Attention from Italy, as well as being a late addition to Alfio Basile's Copa America side should cushion the blow. Now he has a week to think about nothing else but how to beat the United States.
