Penarol vs. Nacional preseason friendly costs Pablo Bengoechea his job?

Bengoechea was popular, a former club legend and a successful manager. Did losing to a rival cot him his job?

Naturally the headlines regarding South American football have gone to this weekend's River Plate vs. Boca Juniors match in Argentina. How on earth could a high summer preseason friendly produce the level of animosity that leads to five red cards?

Then again, these big, traditional South American derbies can be a law unto themselves. Reason goes out the window, emotion takes over and gets out of hand -- this was even clearer, perhaps, across the water in Uruguay.

The big Montevideo derby, even...

Penarol forward Diego Forlan wouldn't rule out MLS offer

Uruguayan forward Diego Forlan said he is a frequent visitor to Miami and wouldn't rule out playing in Major League Soccer someday.

The 2010 Golden Ball winner for best player at the 2010 World Cup and the two-time Pichichi trophy winner helped Penarol to the Apertura title in the Uruguay first division this month. 

During a visit to Miami for an awards ceremony, he admitted that he wouldn't rule out an offer from an MLS club.

"I have huge respect for Porto, another great club who consistently challenge for titles," Forlan wrote, adding that it was a tough decision for Real Madrid. "They identify players, develop them and then sell them on for a profit, but let's not pretend they're Real Madrid, one of the biggest clubs in the world. It's a step down for Casillas,...

Diego Forlan returns to boyhood club Penarol in Uruguay

Diego Forlan will return to his native Uruguay to play with boyhood club Penarol.

Forlan, 36, began his youth career with the Montevideo club, where his father Pablo also starred in the 1960s. He signed an 18-month contract.

"I didn't do it for my dad, I did it for myself," Forlan said. "If it makes me happy and all those around me even happier, then for me it will be all that much better.

"I am coming to enjoy football and to try to...

Next game between historic rivals Nacional and Penarol has title weight

The chance for Nacional to win the title on Sunday adds extra spice to their fiery rivalry with Penarol.

Battle resumes on Sunday in the oldest derby outside the British Isles. Since June 1900 the big two clubs in Montevideo, Uruguay, Nacional and Penarol, have been fighting out a bitter rivalry.

At the start, though, Penarol went by another name: Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, which rather gives away the English origins of the institution. Soon, though, the identity of the club was transformed; as Penarol they attracted a following among poor Italian immigrants flooding into Uruguay, people...
