Club football in Uruguay struggling against global pressures

Nacional were the last Uruguayan team to win the Copa Libertadores back in 1988.

The Uruguayan Primera Division got underway this weekend with one of its teams missing.

On the eve of the kickoff, El Tanque Sisley pulled out due to not being able to pay their debts. And so the championship proceeds with the awkward, odd number of 15 participating clubs.

The size of the debt in question seems, by the standard of global football, almost laughably puny. El Tanque Sisley allegedly owe some $357,000, but have only been able to raise around $250,000.

Guillermo Varela leaves Manchester United for Penarol return

Alejandro Moreno responds to Jose Mourinho's belief that Man United will be able to compete with Europe's best in two years.

Manchester United have confirmed that defender Guillermo Varela has re-joined former club Penarol.

Varela, 24, joined United from Penarol in 2013 on a five-year contract during David Moyes' reign but has now been allowed to return to the Uruguayan club.

Palmeiras players face off with Penarol players after their Copa Libertadores match.

Palmeiras are hoping that CONMEBOL act swiftly and punish Uruguayan outfit Penarol following a brawl that marred their 3-2 come-from-behind triumph in Montevideo in the Copa Libertadores.

Instead of celebrating a victory after the final whistle, the Palmeiras players became engaged in...
