A right midfielder/winger for Benfica and for Argentina national team, for which he is an international, already has his name engraved in the history of the club for being a four-time champion.
The Argentina International is one of the four-time champion players of the squad and one of the players that contributed the most to the attainment of this unprecedented achievement in the club history.
Titles, goals, assists, unforgettable dribbles and mind-blowing plays.
This is his history at the Club for which he won an affection that goes beyond the professional level. Having started at Lanús, he established himself, in the start of his career,
as player with great dribbling ability, quick and skillful. And a goal scorer.
In 47 games he played with his favorite club, he scored 13 goals. That was enough to draw attention in the transfer market, having been signed by
Atlético de Madrid
. Interestingly, it was there that his unconditional story of success at Benfica would begin, as he moved to Benfica in a season-long loan deal from the Spanish club. And that association went so well that he would return to Benfica, in the start of the 2012/13 season, after a season at the “colchonero” squad. Since then, he has become a charismatic and successful player.
With the goals scored in the qualifying round (against PAOK), he became the first Argentinean player from Benfica to reach the ten-goal mark in matches from the UEFA competitions.
