Mazel Tov: El Pirata Returns To Real Sociedad

28 Jul

We knew the news was probably imminent when he posted this picture from his apartment in San Sebastian (and Marca was reporting it to be a done deal) yesterday, but 15 minutes ago, he put the following picture  up.

Harry Redknapp confirmed it and La Real did as well. I’m delighted for Esteban. He seems really happy there. The deal goes until 2018.

And with that, I have the perfect excuse to return to San Sebastian (as if I needed one…) Start saving for Arzak, mygypsyspirit (goat wrangling optional this time)!

PS Jailbait! approves of this transfer, posting multiple thumbs up to the first tweet and applause to the second one. That’s a bromance still going strong, I see! 😉

    I’ll take goat wrangling as long as we get our sommelier boyfriend is helping again!

      Absolutely. Since we now know someone with a real sommelier boyfriend, we can bring him along so that he can lure our sommelier boyfriend out on the town with us. 😉

    I’m super excited for him! I’m a little upset that I was originally suppose to be in San Se for a few days this week and would have been able to catch his presentation and stuff, however I’m stuck in Salamanca a few more days (which really isn’t terrible at all). I missed it last year too by a few days due to a family emergency. Why are the fútbol gods mad at me?! Seriously soooo close both times.

      That blows. There are definitely worse places to be than Salamanca though! You should detour to go see him afterward. 🙂 I’m so happy for him – I think he belongs there (if we can’t have him).
