Background: The Argentine impressed Manager John Gorman when playing for Basingstoke Town against Wycombe in a pre-season friendly in July 2005. Offered a trial at Wycombe and then signed a two year deal a couple of weeks into the 2005/6 campaign. Commenting on the signing, Gorman said to the Bucks Free Press "He's shown real hunger and ability and he needs that chance. I like his desire and I like what I see from him on the pitch. If he gets kicked, he just gets up and takes it. He can take a tackle, but he's creative as well and should score a goal or two." The 24 year old originally funded a trip to the UK in 2004 to take a two week trail with Brighton & Hove Albion but even though they they showed no further interest he didn't give up and eventually agreed a deal with with Basingstoke in the Conference South. His subsequent move to Wycombe has rewarded his determination to break into the upper ranks of English football. He said to the press on his signing, "I am so excited. I want to play professional football in England so badly. I have given up everything to do it. I have left my family behind, my sister and all my friends in Argentina. I have lost a lot for football. But I love football and having come this far I am determined to make it. I know it is now or never.
Signed a one year extension to his contract in September 2006 that ran until the end of June 2008. He commented at the time to the Official website (wwfc.com), "I've really enjoyed it here so far. I like the players, I'm really happy and I want to stay. Hopefully I can help us get to League One because to play in that Division will be massive for me."
