When we first reported this story on Saturday – it was first reported in the nufc.com fan site.
It now looks like they were absolutely right â€“ wherever they got their inside information from.
It was reported yesterday in the Sunday Sun that Duscher has indeed left – and is also being reported today.
It looks like Aldo Duscher spent two days at Newcastle’s training ground in Benton â€“ last Thursday and Friday – and it was very clear to all that he was not fit â€“ and so apparently Duscher was dispatched home early from his scheduled 3 day trial. Not sure exactly how nufc.com got their information but credit to them for being ahead of everyone else on this one.
Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce decided against offering terms to the Deportivo La Coruna midfielder Aldo Duscher â€“ who would have cost nothing as a free agent – but as we understand it – Sam wasn’t even there on Friday but may have cast the eye over Aldo on Thursday. The 28-year-old came close to signing for Newcastle in a big-money move in 2005 â€“ but has now lost his chance to join Sam’s revolution at Newcastle.
Well â€“ we have to ask the obvious question â€“ if Duscher has the talent â€“ why couldn’t we take him and get him fit before the season started?
But maybe the fact that he turns up unfit at Newcastle for a trial tells Big Sam something about Aldo’s character and temperament. If that is the case – we have to trust Sam’s judgement on these things â€“ it’s been so good in the past on players. Anyway that’s the obvious question that came to our minds about Duscher â€“ it would still have been exciting to have signed him â€“ for nothing.
