“I visited Israel in January of 2018 on a program for a few weeks. I was captivated. I fell in love with the country. I quickly made Aliyah and found a new home. I hoped Israel would be a great place for a new career and social opportunities and so far, I found that I was right!
“Although the idea of making Aliyah seemed pretty easy, I had a few concerns, one of which being how would I continue my passion for football in Israel. Coming from Argentina, football was a huge part of my life and I was not ready to leave that behind. I played competitively growing up, competing in tournaments all over Argentina.
“Soon after arriving in Israel, I began my search for a new club. I found Inter Aliyah on Facebook and reached out to them. After a dinner meeting, I was sold. I was invited to training, played well and started playing!
“This team is not like any team I’ve played for in the past. This team feels like a real family. We share a bond to which no other team can relate. All of us being Olim, it creates a very special environment.
''This team is not just a football team, it's much more than that. For me, it is one of the key reasons the transition to Israel felt smooth.
