Career[edit]

Born in Italy, he however, has Argentine citizenship and began his career in Argentina. He was the star striker in the successful team of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata that finished third in 1970, known as "La Borredora" ("The Sweeper"). He joined Stade de Reims in 1971, which was a far less successful team than the one of fifteen years earlier and they struggled in Division 1. He then played for AS Monaco FC for seven years, scoring 157 goals. In 1980, despite playing in one of the best teams in Division 1, he signed for newly promoted and inexperienced team FC Tours, where he was twice again Division 1 leading goalscorer. In 1983, as Tours got relegated, he joined SC Toulon, where he finished his career in 1986.
