Vuoso was signed by Kevin Keegan from Independiente, but fails to impress his new manager, though supporters wonder why he isn’t given the chance to impress given his hefty price tag on at least one occasion.
His career continues to go downhill thereafter and he played against his former employers in July 2011 when City took on Club America in San Francisco.
