Newell’s Old Boys 2016/17 Arrive

Argentinian club Newell’s Old Boys have perhaps the least desirable of all nicknames – The Leprosy – but it was gained for all of the right reasons. The Clasico Rosarino between Newell’s Old Boys and Rosario Central was scheduled in the 1920s to raise funds for a local leprosy hospital but Rosario pulled out – earning them the nickname of El Canalla (the Scoundrels) in the process.

Newell’s willingness to participate for a noble cause is an honour rather the disparagement a first glance might suggest.
