The Peruvian forward made his first official appearance with the academy. Despite not scoring, he managed to brighten the night for a small fan.
The striker stepped up last Sunday, just over two weeks after his official presentation Paul Guerrero He made his debut with Racing Club in the game his team played on Day 3 of the 2023 Argentina Pro League. The “Predator” played only the last minutes of the 2-2 draw against Tigre, but this short time was enough to disrupt the defensive rival and even scored a goal, although it was canceled by hand in the previous game. Though he couldn’t give fans a win, he found a way to brighten a little Academy fan’s night.
After the game at El Cilindro de Avellaneda stadium, the Peruvian team’s historic goalscorer responded to a plea from a child fan. The attacker did not hesitate to part with his t-shirt to give it to his young fan, who later proudly showed the gift on social networks.
“And that’s how the night ended for Paolo Guerrero as he handed this kid his jersey. A great gesture from the Peruvian,” commented the journalists of the international broadcaster ESPN on the experienced player, who received a yellow card for the hand he committed.
As far as racing is concerned, Fernando Gago’s team didn’t like the draw, as they still don’t know what it means to win at this start of the Argentine championship. Their next game will be this Friday against Arsenal de Sarandí as a guest, a duel in which Guerrero could add more minutes.
What did Paolo Guerrero say after his racing debut?
“Playing at the Cilindro was my dream. It’s nice to be in this stadium with this incredible fan base. Unfortunately we didn’t get the desired result, now we have to keep working. My development was rapid,” were the words of the Peruvian striker after the game.
