Southampton flop Osvaldo quits football for music

Former Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo has quit football for a music career.

The Daily Mail says he wants to devote more time to playing in his band.

The journeyman Argentine-Italian, best known for picking fights with opponents and team-mates alike, was offered a two-year contract on deadline day by Chievo.

But the 30-year-old striker turned down the £2.1million-a-year offer in order to spend more time indulging his musical passions.

His last club was Boca Juniors, but Osvaldo was sacked by the club after manager Guillermo Barros caught him smoking in the changing rooms during a Copa Libertadores quarter-final.
