Mauro Boselli is back training with the rest of his Wigan Athletic team mates in Austria and everybody at the club will be hoping that it is ‘third time lucky’ for the Argentina born hit man this season.
Mauro was signed by Roberto Martinez from Estudiantes on 29th June 2010. He signed a four year deal and became the costliest player in Latics’ history when he signed for an undisclosed fee that was rumoured to be around the £6,800,000 mark.
His first game for the club saw him score twice in a pre season friendly against Swedish outfit Ostersunds at the end of a training camp in Sweden, Latics running out 3-2 winners. His Premier League debut came on the opening day of the 2010/11 season, a home 0-4 defeat against newly promoted Blackpool at the DW Stadium.
He was to make just 5+3 Premier League appearances without finding the net before securing a loan move to Genoa until the end of the season on 13th January 2011. After making a single goal scoring appearance for Latics against Ostersunds in a pre season friendly (again) in July 2011, he returned to his former club Estudiantes for the whole of season 2011/12 in a loan deal.
Here’s hoping the remainder of his contract can be spent scoring goals for Latics and it is reported that Mauro is determined to make the most of what could well be his last chance to make a name for himself in England.
