Santiago ASCACIBAR has been officially unveiled as a VFB Stuttgart player.
He has signed a contract with them until 2022 and will wear the No.6 jersey. The Under-20 Argentine player had this to say:
“The Bundesliga is one of the best leagues in the world. I’ve heard so much about Stuttgart. The fans here are fantastic and the atmosphere at the stadium is great. I’m looking forward to wear the Stuttgart shirt”.
ASCACIBAR now becomes the fifth Argentinian in the Germany Bundesliga. We have the full list here.
I think it’s a decent move for El Ruso provided he gets lots first team action. He should be able to grow as a player and hopefully one day move to a better club.
[…] Santiago ASCACIBAR became the first Argentinian to join a Bundesliga team this transfer market, there could soon be another one. Argentina international and River Plate […]
Today Sevilla with 5 Argentines.
Finally an argentin coach Berizzo who loves his compatriots…despite argentine hater Simeone
Sebastian Driussi (from River to Zenit)
Emiliano Rigoni (from Independiente to Zenit)
Thomas Rodriguez (from Banfield to Genoa)
Ricardo Centurion ( from Boca to Genoa)
Emmanuel Cecchini (from Banfield to Inter, loan to Malaga)
Rodrigo Rey (from Godoy Cruz to PAOK Saloniki)
Guido Pizarro (from Tigres to Sevilla)
Marcos Acuna (from Racing to Sporting)

Facundo Colidio (from Boca to Juventus)
Juan Foyth (from Estudiantes – soon in Europe too)
all the players rather young and ranked high before transfer
Nice to see this list Gonzalo. Colidio went to inter by the way. Im disappointed that they hijacked him from my fav team Juventus.
Thanks to correct me, vimaldass
And I forgot about:
Esteban Rolon (from Argentinos Juniors to Malaga) – another our young CM in Europe. Hope to see him in future along Cecchini in central midfield.
Last transfers to Russia (Rigoni), Germany (Ascacibar), France (Brain Fernandez) – countries that never were good for our players but maybe it will change soon.
France why? Two of the best goalscorers of france champs history are two argentines Carlos Bianchi and Delio Onnis plus recently Gallardo (player of the year in 2000), Lisandro Lopez, Cesar Delgado, Lucas Bernardi (Cl final), Ibarra (CL final), Heinze, Pochettino (voted best PSG defender ever), Pastore (always good when he plays), Di Maria, Sorin, Cetto, Cavenaghi, Nestor Fabbri (Nantes legend), Lavezzi etc
You named a lot of players that have been playing in France at all but achieved not much like Sorin for instance. France is not as hard soil for our players like Germany of course but numbers of players and succeses never were close to Argentines in Italy and Spain.
But now I will follow with great interest few players of the league. Especially Fernandez and Poblete of Metz. Lo Celso, Vada.
I wonder what that may brings. Ascacibar and Bundesliga. Let’s see.
