The case of Ruben Botta is very particular. He signed for Livorno on a Bosman move from Club Atletico Tigre, under the guidance of Inter, but shortly before joining, he tore his ACL and his meniscus. Inter are paying €600k out of his €750k wage and the 23-year-old CAM spent his whole rehabbing process at La Pinetina, Inter’s training facility.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Botta has healed, but obviously he needs to regain the rhythm and match form. Mazzarri spoke of the Argentinian youngster before the Milan derby, but his near future will be at Livorno, that will finally have a chance to see the player they have under contract.
