Gastón Sangoy (born 5 October 1984 in Paraná, Entre Ríos) is an Argentine footballer who is currently playing for Apollon Limassol

Career[edit]

A product of the Boca Juniors youth system in Argentina, he has been loaned out for most of his young career to clubs in the Netherlands,[1] Israel and Cyprus. Playing mainly as a second striker, but also as a right and left winger because of his ability to use with great success both his feet, he is renowned for his excellent direct free-kicks.

Universitario de Deportes[edit]

In January 2006 he moved to Peru, to play for Universitario de Deportes. He played Copa Libertadores and scored 3 goals in 5 games.

Stint in Israel and settle in Cyprus[edit]

After trialling with Maccabi Tel Aviv,[2] the club turned down the loan offer citing the players weight problems.[3] He then found his way to Liga Leumit side, Hapoel Ashkelon. There he had a breakout season and guided the club to the Israel State Cup final. Despite his performances in the cup, the club was relegated to the Liga Artzit and Sangoy left Israel to sign with Cypriot club, Apollon Limassol. In April 2008, after several decent performances with his new club, he signed a four-year extension to his contract until 2012. Despite being a very disappointing season for Apollon Limassol, 2008–09 was for Sangoy the most prolific season in his career having scored 20 goals in 27 championship matches and as a result being the fans favourite. In May 2009 a very controversial decision was taken by the Cyprus Football Association (CFA). After announcing a month before that the league's top scorer was to be decided at the end of the regular season, who at the time was Sangoy, the CFA reversed its decision by saying that the top scorer was to be decided after the end of the play-offs. Thus Sangoy, who during this time was preserved by his coach for the more important cup matches, missed the "golden boot". In 2009, he became Apollon's captain. In 2010 he played a major role in helping his team Apollon Limassol winning the Cypriot Cup.
