The former forward referred to the friendship he has with the Juventus player.
Germán Alemanno had an outstanding step through Peruvian soccer, where he managed to become a national champion with the San Martín University. The former Argentine striker made his professional debut at Rosario Central in 2004 and was at the club until 2007. During his stay with the ‘scoundrels’, he met a world-class footballer such as Ángel Di María, with whom he struck up a relationship great friendship.

The Peruvian midfielder aroused the interest of the ‘xeneizes’ and the board is evaluating his arrival so that he becomes a new player for this season, according to the Argentine press.
The 39-year-old attacker shared on several occasions with the ‘Fideo’ in the Argentine team. One of them was the signing of the skilful winger to Benfica, although he stayed at the club for six months. At that time, the former player from Universidad César Vallejo supported him so that he could join the squad quickly, despite the fact that he was not one of the most experienced on the team.
Their friendship lasted over time. ‘Avatar’ went to visit him three years ago, when he was still playing for Paris Saint Germain. On that occasion, Alemanno noticed that Di María was still the same humble boy he knew. Likewise, he never hesitates to mention him as an example for the youth.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport also ratified FIFA’s decision on the Peruvian midfielder. ‘Cuevita’ seeks to settle with Santos internally.
‘Puflo’ shared the playing field with ‘Fideo’ on several occasions, giving him an assist for his first goal. It was in a duel against Quilmes for the Apertura in 2006. The former soccer player managed to take the ball down the right wing and took the opportunity to put a cross into the area. Marcos Rubén, Rosario Central’s striker in that game, failed to connect the ball. When it seemed that the play was lost, Di María stepped into the area and took a cross shot that beat the rival goalkeeper. That meeting ended with a 4-2 in favor of the ‘scoundrels’.
The current Juventus striker emerged world champion a few weeks ago with the Argentine team. In the final they beat France 4-2 in a penalty shootout, after drawing 3-3. The ‘Noodle’ was essential for the ‘albiceleste’ to get their third star. He generated a free kick inside the area that Lionel Messi converted and scored in the 36th minute.
The former Argentine striker was champion with the ‘saints’ in 2010.
Alemanno came to Peruvian soccer in the middle of 2009, after passing through Platense. His first club was Universidad San Martín, where he had a high level. In the second phase of the tournament, the former striker scored five goals in 12 games.

The Peruvian Volleyball Federation announced the new dates of the next matches after the suspension of the tournament.
In the following season, the ‘Puflo’ would manage to win the Decentralized Tournament with the ‘saints’, after beating León de Huánuco in the final. In that edition, he managed to score 18 goals in 42 games. In addition, he scored two goals in the Copa Sudamericana against Deportivo Quito.
In the Santa Anita team, he shared a dressing room with players like Leao Butrón, Christian Cueva, Josepmir Ballón, Aldo Corzo, Heber Arriola and Pablo Vitti, among others.
Alemanno had a stint in the Peruvian second division, when he signed for Deportivo Coopsol in 2017. During his time in the ‘yellow submarine’ he played 22 games in the first year, scoring seven goals and assisting three times. In the second he did not get the same numbers: he participated in half the games and could not convert.
The fact that generated his poor performance was due to the lack of desire to continue playing. The poor conditions in which he trained caused him to lose interest in competing until he decided to retire from soccer in 2019.
One of the footballers with whom ‘Puflo’ made friends in Peru was with the Argentine Pablo Vitti, when both coincided in the ‘saints’ and in the ‘scoundrel’. His great compatibility on the field of play made them a lethal duo in the San Martín attack. Both were very similar in physical appearance, so much so that it caused them a problem.
In a preseason with the ‘saints’, Alemano was confused with the former Argentine midfielder, when he was leaving a social gathering on Boulevard de Asia. That mistake almost generated a discussion in his marriage, but he did not get any further thanks to the fact that he stayed to sleep that night at his in-laws’ house.
