Oscar Ahumada, former River Plate and All Boys midfielder has signed for Maschwitz’s Deportivo Armenio for the next 6 months in the so-called “Transitional” Tournament (called so because it will be the tournament sandwiched between the last long short tournament into the year-long tournament season for all categories in Argentine Football, but especially for Primera Division’s).
Ahumada, 31 years old, better known for his “silencio atroz” declaration while he was a River Plate, comes to Deportivo Armenio, a club led by Independiente and AFA director Noray Nakis, in an attempt to shock the market with big name signing for a club with no big infrastructure but hopes to grow in the category.
Oscar played last season for Floresta side All Boys, in which he was relegated from the first division, having played only 15 games (many as a substitute) with no goals and having lost his place as a starter in the team. Ahumada played two spells for River Plate River (2002-2004 and 2005-2010), as well as Germany’s Wolfsburg (2004-2005), Mexico’s Veracruz (2010-2011) and Russia’s FC Rostov (2011-2012).
