Player Profiles: The Goalkeepers

I am going to do a series of "player profiles" based on our current squad. Today's post will be based on the Goalkeepers.

Juan Pablo Carrizo - Despite being a very young player, Carrizo is undeniably an important figure in the team. He is arguably the best goalkeeper in Argentina, and is expected to have a clear, bright future at both club and international level. Big clubs, such as Milan of Italy, have inquired River for a transfer and are willing to exchange big digits for this star.

German Lux - If it were based on his talent, he'd be concentrating every game. But the situation is not currently circulating around that subject. "El Poroto" got into an argument with Daniel Passarella and doesn't even train with the team. The Argentine International, who won the Olympics without recieving even one goal, is expected to leave when his contract expires in June.

Bernardo Leyenda - This goalkeeper has played for Velez Sarfield, Banfield, and Independiente before joining River. The 26 year old also played for Leganes of Spain for a year. He joined our club in June 2006, but has yet to make his debut (hasn't played in any matches.. not even friendlies.)

Juan Marcelo Ojeda - Just like Leyenda, he is not a bad keeper, but is no where near Carrizo's level. He is 24 and has played a total 84 matches for Rosario Central in a 3-year long career. His term at River is expected to be similar to Leyenda's: being Carrizo's sub and recieving few or no minutes.
