''I have been playing football since I was as young as 2 years old. My earliest memories of football are seeing my father play, which he did until his 50 years old, in Hebraica, a country club from Argentina, and I used to go to see him every weekend when I was a child.
''So pretty much my whole life I've been playing the best sport in the world and that didn't change when I left Argentina to come to Israel. I had always wanted to make Aliyah and I finally made it with my girlfriend in March 2021. Being here, with family and friends, has been the nicest experience in my life.
