Swiss first division side Grasshopper-Club have taken striker Antonio Barijo on loan as a replacement for departing veteran Stéphane Chapuisat.
The 25-year-old, nicknamed Chippi, joins from Argentinian club CA Boca Juniors where he was top scorer in this season’s Copa Libertadores – South America’s equivalent of the UEFA Champions League.
Change of management
However, a charge of management at the Buenos Aries-based team has seen Barijo lose his first-team place and opt for a move to Europe, having played in the Argentinian Torneo Nacional since he was 16.
Young Boys switch
Chapuisat has joined BSC Young Boys after being told he would receive no new contract at Grasshoppers.
