It looks like we were correct - and by 'we' I mean the Denver Post - and Rosario Central midfielder Martin Rivero is indeed the 'true 10' player that the Rapids have been scouting all this time. Unfortunately, two announcement deadlines by Tim Hinchey later we're seeing no Martin Rivero on the roster for the Rapids.
The Denver Post reported late Tuesday that apparently Rivero is technically still under contract with Rosario Central and they're trying to keep him in Argentina rather than letting him come up to Colorado. Kind of funny when you consider the fact that people were making up rumors about Dallas or somebody trying to block the signing after the deadline got moved on Monday.
Hinchey is taking this in stride and is making up for his mistake, at least. Good man, him. Until we actually see a result from the overhyped media circus that surrounded the Rivero signing though, it's going to be a long week.
Thanks to our friends at The Terrace for the original news on this.
