Jonathan Fabbro (born 16 January 1982 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine-born naturalized-Paraguayan retired football midfielder.[1]

He also played for the Paraguay national football team. Fabbro played in the 2004 Intercontinental Cup. In 2012, Fabbro was named as the Paraguayan Footballer of the Year. He is the brother of former footballer Darío Fabbro.


In 2002, Fabbro returned from Spain's RCD Mallorca to join Boca Juniors Reserves and Academy. On 5 May 2002, Fabbro debuted for the first-team of Boca Juniors in a 2–1 home victory against Velez Sarsfield, where he was coached by Óscar Tabárez. Fabbro then went on to play for the club's first-team in a match against Independiente. In 2003, Fabbro returned to play for the Boca Juniors first-team in four more matches, where he would score one goal against Rosario Central in a match which Boca Juniors lost 7-2 having fielded the majority of the first-team with youth-team players. Fabbro would also participate in three continental matches, scoring one goal against Colón de Santa Fé in the 2003 Copa Sudamericana.

Personal life[edit]

He's been in a relationship with Paraguayan model Larissa Riquelme since 2011.

Legal troubles and allegations of child sexual abuse[edit]

In 2010, Fabbro hit with his car and killed a 23-year-old woman who was taking her five-year-old son to school on her motorbike in Videla, Santa Fe, Argentina.[2] Fabbro was eventually sued by the victim's family and had money docked from his wages to pay a compensation, but in 2012 he and his girlfriend hit another motorcyclist during a car chase with Paraguayan police.[3]

In 2017, Fabbro was accused of sexually abusing his 11-year-old goddaughter (daughter of his brother Darío) and another underage girl.[4] On May 2018, the footballer was extradited from Mexico to Argentina by order of Interpol, and imprisoned.[5]
