With his clubs, he won three league titles with River Plate and a Copa Libertadores with Internacional. In 2010, he was also voted as the South American Footballer of the Year, to add to his list of accomplishments.


  1. My favorite player, the most under rated player. He was not selected in Arg N/T in right time and right place. Should be in the 2010 & 2014 squad.

  2. One of my favorite players i had the priviledge to watching him play live in his best. Especially Ortega-D Alessandro-Cardetti trio will be always one of my best and i will never forget.
    wow what years it was back then. how many memories. what an era.


  3. Everton was not playing well. United just giving them chances after chances and vice- versa. Ronaldo just completely disappeared from the game. But yes Everton fans and players are happy that ever in this season. They went up with 4points from the relegation zone.

  4. This MU is screwed up this season. CR7 moves to the wrong club. There is no way they would finish top 4. They lost against Everton, the worst EPL team after the January transfer windows.

    They got Harry Maguire for £80 million, Sancho for £73 million, Varane for what? £60 million? then CR7. They promoted the wrong youth: Elanga instead of Garnacho. Rashford is massively overrated. Pogba and Bruno played for themselves. Sancho has been the worst transfer of the season. End of season? they would be lucky to be 7th in the standing by the end of the season.
