Claudio Borghi found a novel way to describe Boca Juniors superstar Juan Roman Riquelme, comparing the number 10 to a three-breasted girl in trying to explain how Roman was different from the average player.
"It is the first time that I am managing someone who I truly admire, a player of whom you can really say 'he is a true star'. I always point out the obvious, which is going to be the front cover tomorrow.
"He is a girl with three breasts, that is how unique he is," Borghi affirmed to a press conference on Thursday, as gathered reporters howled with laughter.
Borghi is known for his easy manner in front of the cameras, asserting last year with Argentinos Juniors that his wife thought he looked like "a Peruvian pornstar" on TV.
Riquelme returns to first team action after six months out this weekend against Argentinos, with expectations high in a team which had struggled for consistency without him.
Borghi however pleaded patience from the fans, conscious of the error of expecting the player to turn around a season on his own.
"It would be unfair to expect Roman to solve all of our problems", the coach added.
