But given that almost all of Argentina's leading players are contracted to clubs in France or the UK, do not expect this to be the last instance of a club's needs being put ahead of the country's.
As a journalist, he pisses all over Neville Nobodies like Stephen Jones, Brendan Gallagher and Mark Reason.
