[08 FEB 99] BEDWORTH UNITED NEWS
Bedworth Bag Ardiles Junior

Bedworth United have signed Frederico Ardiles, son of the eighties Argentina and Spurs legend Ossie.

Frederico, a Film and Literature student at the University of Warwick, was just three weeks old when his father signed for Spurs and has lived all his life in London.

Freddie, as he is known, said:

"Dad has never really been supportive of my football career, he has always pushed me academically. I would not mind being a professional footballer, but if not I shall do something in films."

His father was one of many professional footballers who appeared in the film 'Escape to Victory' about a prisoner-of-war camp. What did he think of his dad’s performance?

"I thought it was a wonderful acting performance," he replied with a grin.

Ossie Ardiles is currently out of work after resigning from his last football job in Japan. His other son, 24 year old Pablo plays for Hoddeston Town. Both boys are midfielders like their father.

Freddie says:

"I asked the university football trainer if he could find me a semi-professional club and he came up with Bedworth United. They seemed to be just the club for me, so signed. I only played a few minutes in the reserves against Rushden & Diamonds on Saturday but I hope to play a full game this week."

He has been back to Argentina only half a dozen times - the latest being earlier this year when his mother and father celebrated their silver wedding anniversary.
