Ledesma's World[...].

BORO winger Emmanuel Ledesma is planning a busman's holiday as he returns home to Argentina for the summer - to watch the World Cup.

"I am looking forward to a break after a long season," he told the Gazette "But when I go back home it will be football, football, football.

"It is the World Cup so everything in Argentina will be crazy - especially when we play!

"I will watch every game with my family and enjoy every minute. Everyone in Argentina will enjoy it.

"Especially as I think Argentina have a big possibility of winning the World Cup this time.

"We have good players, we have a good team and we have Messi who is fantastic.

"Do I think Argentina will win? I think we have a big possibility.

"But I think Brazil are the big rivals. They play at home and have the crowds behind them and they have great players too.

"They will be the favourites. They have a strong chance."

But during the break it won't be all about watching football on the box for the flanker.

"I will be thinking about next season while I am away," he said.

"I will be working, running and keeping sharp to be at my best for when I come back.

"I will enjoy my holiday but I will look forward to coming back to start work again very soon."
