The discoverer of Lautaro Martinez: “Class A player, his Liniers is a hotbed of talent”

During the special of Sky Sports dedicated to Lautaro Martinez, its discoverer Fabio Radaelli he described his footballing imprinting with the current Inter captain this way: “I saw him on one of the many trips we made to hunt for talent in Argentina. Many great footballers grew up at Liniers. I always went there when I was in the area. The first time I saw Lautaro he was training with the youth selection, that boy immediately caught my attention with several plays. He was what we called ‘Class A'”. Comment by Diego Huertaformer chief scout of Racing: “He had great control of the ball with which he turned immediately. Lautaro had incredible running power despite not being a very tall footballer.”

The words of father Mario Martinez
“As a child we called him Maravilla or Pelusita, since I am called Pelusa. At Racing he showed off his power, from here and from the celebration with his hands crossed the nickname Toro was born. The mother in the family is the one who suffered more so, the separation from Lautaro, it’s a bit like they stole your son. I remember that sometimes he went to look at his room and put a plate on the table for him too, knowing however that that plate would remain empty “beginning, but we knew that Lautaro dreamed of being a footballer and that he was on the verge of making it.”
