Camilo Caper Continues!

March 1, 2014 at 11:44 pm | Posted in Vancouver Whitecaps | 3 Comments

The one man reality show called Camilo Sanvezzo continues to get high ratings.  

His double cross on his cheapo contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps and subsequent signing with Los Gallos Blancos de Queretero was, sadly, the biggest news of the Vancouver Whitecaps off-season.  

Camilo’s run to the promised land has turned out to be a bit of a nightmare: he hasn’t played due to injury, and what is worse, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is now stuck in the dishwasher.

Our former golden boy who was paid in tin by the Whitecaps is now being paid nothing by Los Gallos Blancos. 

Apparently Queretaro’s big shot owner’s companies have been accused of fraud by Citibank and its assets have been frozen.  The money which funded the team is no longer liquid.

When they said truth is stranger than fiction they meant it.  After lighting up the MLS by winning the goalscoring title and trying to cash in on it,  Camilo sits hobbled and unpaid.

There are no winners in this story, which is a lesson about stupid greed on the one hand and penny-wise-pound-foolishness on the other.

Those of us Whitecaps fans who had our footballing hopes and hearts crushed by Camilo now have a measure of revenge.

  1. As you said there are no winners here Whereas you mention “tin” it is safe to say lenarduzzi is the football world’s version of the brainless scarecrow in the wizard of oz.

  2. who says it was lenarduzzi’s decision not give camilo more money to stay with the caps?? seems to me the ‘buck always stops at the top’, in other words, the owners who actually have to pony up the money and to some degree, the MLS FO

    • The fact that Lenarduzzi said he had not “had a chance” to talk to Camilo before the Christmas holiday shows incredible lack of management skill…he is out of his league in the MLS
