Heartfelt memory of Valentin Castellanos, a striker who scored four goals for Real Madrid after being exiled to Blues

Recognizing talent is not enough. The great challenge of critical teams is to build on those qualities. I give confidence to young players,

But Let it be said by the University of Chile, quickly got rid of Argentina’s Valentin Castellanosstriker who He made four in a single game against Real Madrid in a 4–2 victory About whom everyone talks about in Europe and America.

a striker Who arrived in Chile in 2016 at the age of only 17. Diego rivarolaAt that time a Blue Box consultant spotted him in Mendoza and did not hesitate to introduce him to the club.,

When Tatie was already thinking of giving up football, the former Blue goalscorer’s offer re-enchanted the youngster with the idea of ​​playing ball professionally.

A shy boy who left home for the first time. In a different country, in a different discipline, and with the illusion of becoming a professional player. He played only 15 minutes on April 6, 2017, for the Copa Sudamericana against Corinthians of Brazil.

After that game, he did not appear in first-team calls, as stated by the player himself in an interview with La Cuarta three years earlier.

“My time at U was short and long at the same time. I was there for a year and a half, of which I went 10 months without playing because I was 17 and FIFA did not authorize me to be registered”Mendoza’s man said.

This situation represented a real problem for the youngster, who was unable to get much support in the team due to bureaucratic issues alone that would later let him go.

“I wanted some papers, which did not come. I turned 18, I signed a contract in October 2016 and in January they put me on the team. From there I was able to debut.”Tati accepted.

But the striker somehow didn’t explode in the blue squad. technician Angel Guillermo Hoyos He failed to pay attention to his conditions and left for Montevideo City torqueOne of the City Group Clubs, It is owned by the Emirati royal family and whose main institution is the mighty sky-blue team from Manchester.

“It was frustrating because u didn’t know how to take advantage of me. It was very sad for me. I left everything, I wanted to debut and add many games. It hurt me that they Didn’t take into account me, but it served me as an experience at least. Had the opportunity to visit Torque in Uruguay, where I played several games. Everything happens for a reason, I’m fine with ‘u’ because they opened doors for me, but I have a thorn in my head.” assured Tati three years ago, when he was already defending the colors of new york city, One of the holding clubs.

The truth is that the trans-Andean player was transferred to the Uruguayan team, which exercised a buyout option for the player after one season. In that transfer, the blue outfit didn’t secure a single cent of a player who is worth over US$50 million today. The story was told by the athlete himself.

“I’m going on loan to Tork with a purchase option. I had a good season and I knew the club belonged to the Manchester City Group. New York City made a purchase option for $500,000, which was a lot more than the price at the time. It was less. Maybe they got confused in you and whatever happened, happened.” They said Castellanos,

A mix that cost several million dollars. With the team from the Big Apple, he scored 53 goals in 116 games for Major League Soccer alone., Last year he came very close to making it to River Plate to fill the spot left by Julian Alvarez, but the high price of his token ruined his claim.

last July, Citigroup decided to hand it over to Girona, a team recently promoted to the first division in Spain and another institution that thrives under the holding’s tutelage.

In his first season with the Catalan squad Add 31 games between LaLiga and Copa del Rey, in which a dozen goals have been changed, The 24-year-old is among the four players to have scored for Real Madrid in less than an hour.

a milestone that didn’t happen since 1947 in league tournaments, when Esteban Echevarria scored five runs in a singles duel against meringues (the only one who did it), Heaven’s team’s 7–1 win over the Capitals on December 21 of that year,
