At the top-tier club, where three Slovenian footballers play, this isn't the first time such a situation has occurred recently. The experienced Argentine returns to the club where his contract only expired in July.
Roberto Pereyra has returned to Udinese. The 32-year-old Argentine became a free agent at the end of the last season, with his contract expiring at the Serie A club. The transfer window is closed, and it seems Udinese decided they needed an additional midfielder. They offered a contract to Pereyra, a former Juventus and Watford player, which he accepted.
So far, Pereyra has made 200 appearances for Udinese in all competitions, contributing 23 goals and 33 assists. This story is reminiscent of last year's situation involving Dutchman Marvin Zeegelaar. Last summer, he left Udinese as a free agent, only to return a few months later and play several matches.
Three Slovenian footballers are also part of Udinese: Sandi Lovrič, Jaka Bijol, and David Pejičić. The first two are already senior national team players for Slovenia, while Pejičić, at just 16 years old, is considered a significant talent.
Udinese has high hopes for his future. Despite his young age, he has already been integrated into the senior squad, with whom he trains regularly and diligently.
