He was one of Massimo Moratti’s favourites and also won the heart of Twitter’s most prominent Venezia fan, and my cousin, Marco Rinaldi (@marcoarrinaldi). Little wonder with the skills he possessed…
El Chino Recoba was a player who seemed to have the world at his feet (his left foot, at least) but who never quite made the breakthrough his talent deserved.
Sadly no other team was willing to build the team around him as Venezia had, and so his mercurial talents were never given the stage they deserved.
He now plays in Uruguay - but will always be held in high regard by the Arancioneroverdi.
