Rosario cut ties with Kily Gonzalez

Rosario Central have cancelled the contract of former Argentina winger Kily Gonzalez.

The 34-year-old former Valencia and Inter Milan star is recovering from knee ligament damage and is not expected to be fit for action for another three months. He has been told by the Rosario board he is free to find a new club.

Gonzalez began his professional career with Rosario in 1993 and rejoined the club in the 2006-07 season.

Rosario president Horacio Usandizaga has said he will pay Gonzalez for the remainder of his contract, which was due to expire in June.

"I don't have any reason to meet Kily. We want to rescind the contract," he said.

Usandizaga also criticised Rosario coach Gustavo Alfaro, claiming he took a back seat in the move to cancel Gonzalez's contract.

"Coaches always wash their hands in such matters and use us to say what they think," he added.

"The coach agrees that he (Gonzalez) worked badly in the last pre-season and this year, due to his injury, his form will not be the best either."

Gonzalez, who played in the 2002 World Cup for Argentina and clinched gold in the 2004 Olympics in Athens, expressed his anger towards Usandizaga on Boxing Day, saying: "This may be the only case in the world that a board tell an injured player (that his contract has been cancelled).

"I want to continue in Central. I tell this to everyone that wants to hear. I want to take Central out of this bad moment (the relegation battle)."
