It's Burnley not Barnsley says Mostto to Penny

It's Burnley not Barnsley says Mostto to Penny

Burnley fans will remember, Miguel Mostto, the Barnsley striker who scored his only goal in English football against the Clarets in a 1-1 draw at Oakwell last season.

Peruvian International,Mostto was signed by Barnsley on a two-year deal from Cienciano for a fee of about £400,000 in 2007.

Mostto however moved back to Peru in February this year to join his former club, Coronel Bolognesi on loan, the same club as former team mate Diego Penny

This was to turn out to be a good move for Clarets fans as it now turns out that Mostto was influential in selling Burnley to our new keeper, Diego Penny.

Penny explains:

"I spoke to Miguel and he told me he had played against Burnley and they were a very good club."'

We can also be grateful to Nolberto Solano,the former Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Ham player

Penny also spoke to Solano another international colleague of his about a move to Burnley FC.

'However, I've spoken with Solano and he told me it's a very good league.(Championship)

'He told me Burnley was the better option'

Diego Penny futher went on to talk about his move to Burnley FC and his Premier League ambitions:

'I'm very happy to be here after a long trip.

'It's a good step for me because it's the first time I've left my country, and I'll try to do my best job here.

'I know a bit about the Championship, but I've seen more of the Premier League in my country.

'Getting into the Premier League is the most important thing for us.'

Speaking to the Burnley Express he also said:

'It wasn't a difficult decision to leave Peru because it was important for me to come here.

'My family told me that it was good for me.

'I'm coming to England to win and to get better.

'Right now Peru is very bad. There are a lot of problems with local life. It's difficult right now.

'I hope that changes, but I hope for a better life in England.'

Hmmm! Sounds like a man who actually is in the sport for the love of it....as opposed to quite a number of players (including ex-Burnley players down the years) who lost sight of what football is all about.
