The Argentinean shot-stopper, who has just ended his season with a disappointing Argentina side being eliminated in the quarter finals of Copa America, has been approached by Argentinian side Boca Juniors – bitter rivals of Carrizo’s last club River Plate.
The two Buenos Aires teams are fierce rivals, and a move between the two clubs is not an option for the Lazio owned goalkeeper: “It is a question of honour and love” Carrizo is quoted saying to Corrieredellosport.it, hence declining a move to Boca.
River Plate will next year be playing in the Argentinean second division for the first time in the club’s 110-year history, and it is believed a couple of previous River players are moving back to secure a quick return for the red-white team of the capital. Also worth noting is that the ex-Lazio player Matias Almeyda has been appointed the team’s new coach.
Lazioland has earlier reported that Carrizo’s wish is to terminate his contract with Lazio and return to Argentina as a free-agent and to play for his beloved River Plate in the second tier. Considering the relatively high price Lazio paid for the player when he arrived from River Plate in 2008 this development is however unlikely to happen, despite Carrizo not being considered a part of coach Edy Reja’s plans for the coming season.
