Manuel Lanzini only aim as a young boy was to play for the football team he supported as  a youngster and that was River Plate.

He turned down a trial with Boca Juniors and was later rewarded when his dream was finally granted when he joined River Plate in 2002 aged just nine. 

Now the midfielder,25, will become a key player as Pellegrini 16 years on as the Chilean manager aims to rebuild the Irons.

In 2008 aged 15, River Plate won the junior division’s Superclásico 3–0 to Boca Juniors with Lanzini scoring 2 goals and assisting the mentioned Salguero in other. He later made his senior debut in 2010 before leaving in 2014.

  1. That is remarkable. Lanzini appears to have shed about 10 stone & thirty years since he first met Pellegrini. Those who have been doubting the powers of this man need a rethink. We should arrange for him to meet Bonzo, Cotten, Paolo for starters. I feel more confident about this every day.
