Premier Injury INDEXWednesday, April 11 2018
Last month [March 30], Frenkie de Jong became one of several medium to long-term holds which will help structure the mainstay of my INDEX portfolio heading into 2019 and beyond. The Ajax midfielder is already showing promise and I’m sitting on a 17% ROI with 250 futures invested.
Next up, is Giovanni Simeone [son of Atletico manager Diego], a 22-year-old striker playing for Italian club Fiorentina. Having announced his Serie A arrival in 2016/17 at Genoa, La Viola quickly snapped up the young Argentine for €15 million after scoring 12-goals in his debut season. And the short move to the north west of Italy’s Liguria region has done nothing to quell his goal scoring.
Simeone once again tops his clubs goal charts, 10 [three assists] from his thirty league starts [which includes a strike against Barca conquerors, Roma, at the Olimpico Stadium last weekend]. Despite a recent 8 per cent rise, I see a lot of upside here for a relatively low buy-in.

Matt's short, unremarkable football career was ended by his own bad driving. His long, distinguished career as a football tipster was ended by his own good advice. Because bookmakers don’t like a winner. First, they closed his accounts. Then his members’ accounts. Then his tipping service. And now they employ him as a consultant. Funny old game.
