Mauro Zárate is a new Cosenza Calcio player

Mauro Zarate will have a new test in Europe and in this case with the shirt of the Cosenza Calcio, a team that plays in the second division of Italian football. The striker was announced as a new reinforcement for the team that is last in the category and whose objective is to avoid relegation.

The 35-year-old gunner’s last club was Platense, where he spent less than a year until both parties opted to terminate the contract after he played 20 games and scored three goals. But this will not be his first experience in Italy, since there he has defended the colors of Inter Y Fiorentina. But his most remembered step was for Lazio where he scored 34 goals, 16 of them in the first season.

The ex Velez Sarsfield Y Boca Juniorswho has also worn the shirts of América Mineiro and Youth of Brazil, will have the mission to shine in the Cosenza Calcio, which featured it as a fancy booster on its website. It is that the club urgently needs to add as many points as possible in the second half of the campaign if it wants to avoid relegation.

In Series B he is last, with just 21 units in 22 presentations. In this category the worst three will be relegated to Serie C, while the 17th could aspire to a first leg final and fly with the 16th if the difference between them is less than four points. Otherwise, it will also go down. Cosenza Calcio is only two points away from aspiring to that possible final that Benevento and Cittadella would play for now. The division leader is Frosinone, with 48 points, followed by Genoa, 40, and Reggina, 39.

Zárate will play in the 15th team of his career. Apart from his clubs in Argentina, he had a journey that went through Italy with the Lazio, Fiorentina and Interin England with the West Ham United, Birmingham, Queens Park Rangers and Watford; in the United Arab Emirates with the Al Nasr SCin Qatar with Al Sadd SC., in Brazil with the America Mineiro and Youth. The midfielder made his debut in Liniers’ cast at the age of 17 and stood out for his ability and soon became an idol for the Fort, where he won two titles (2005 Clausura Tournament and 2013 Argentine Super Cup), but the idyll ended when he decided to leave the club and go to Boca Juniors, where he won four championships (2018 Argentine Super Cup, 2019/2020 Super League, League Cup 2020 and Argentine Cup 2020).
