Tomás Guzmán fullname Tomás Andrés Guzmán Gaetan (born 7 March 1982 in Asunción) is a Paraguayan football striker who plays for Sportivo San Lorenzo in the Primera División Paraguaya.[1]

Club career[edit]

Guzmán joined the Juventus youth system, one of the best youth systems in the world, from Presidente Hayes. He was then loaned out in 2002 to gain experience at Ternana. For the 2003–04 season, he was again loaned out, but this time to Messina. After Messina were promoted to Serie A, Juventus opted to loan him out to Serie B side Crotone. After a successful year with Crotone he was loaned out to Serie A side Siena for the 2005–06 Serie A season, along with several other Juventus players such as Nicola Legrottaglie, and Matteo Paro. When Juventus were relegated to Serie B for the Calciopoli scandal in 2006, Guzmán re-joined the Old Lady in their quest to return to the Italian top flight and signed a contract extension to June 2010. At Juventus, Guzmán had the oppritunity to work alongside fellow strikers and world champions Alessandro Del Piero and David Trezeguet, along with Marcelo Zalayeta, Valeri Bojinov, Raffaele Palladino, and Sebastian Giovinco. After not finding much playing time at Juventus, he was loaned out to Spezia for the remainder of the 2006–07 Serie B season. After a decent time with Spezia, he was farmed to Piacenza Calcio for the 2007–08 Serie B season, in co-ownership deal.

International career[edit]

Guzmán played for Paraguay at the 1997 FIFA U-17 World Championship and the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship.[2]
