Franco di Santo being frozen out by Jorge Sampaoli


Franco di Santo is heading into a problematic situation, as Atletico Mineiro coach Jorge Sampaoli is not keen on bringing him back to training even as football is on the verge of resuming to its normal schedule. The Argentine striker is back in his home continent after signing forAtletico Mineiro. He has been on the road for the last few years, as he has been unable to find a proper destination. His most comfortable spell in recent years was with Schalke, where he spent four years from 2015 to 2019.

This recently came to an end after the move to Spanish outfit Rayo Vallecano, but this was not so successful. After joining the Spanish outfit on a free transfer in January 2019, the striker only featured in six games before being released.
