McCall hails departing Bosch

Mark McCall said Marcelo Bosch has “made Saracens a better club” after it was revealed that the centre will leave at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old Argentina international has played a big part in Sarries’ success since joining from Biarritz in 2013, making 130 appearances for the Premiership champions.

Saracens head coach McCall paid a glowing tribute to the long-serving midfielder, who will be hoping to sign off with more honours as the London club go in search of another Premiership and European Champions Cup double.

“When we recruit players at Saracens, we are primarily concerned with signing good people. In Marcelo, we have a clear example of why.” said McCall.

“Chelo gives everything for his team-mates every time he takes the field, playing with his trademark style and grace.

“Off the field he has significantly contributed to the development of the Saracens culture; many within our group consider Chelo a close friend and someone whom they will always hold in great affection.

“He is a man of enormous integrity and has always put the team’s needs above his own. He has made Saracens a better club. We wish him and his family every success in the future.”
