David Trezeguet left a huge mark on River . Although his stay lasted just a year and a half, his goals were decisive to return to the First Division. And, in addition, he had a rare gesture: being a world star, he left behind the United Arab Emirates dollars to fulfill his dream in a rather adverse sporting circumstance.
Loved and respected by River fans, the 42-year-old former striker recalled his final chapter as a professional soccer player in Núñez. "On an emotional level and at the end of my career, the Monumental cheers for me in the last game that I had to play with the Newell's shirt, which was in a sense my dismissal to the public". ]he mentioned with nostalgia, in statements reproduced by the TyC Sports website.
Trezeguet scored both goals for the promotion triumph against Almirante Brown
The match to which David refers occurred on April 2, 2014, when River won 1-0 against the Rosario team with a goal by Carlos Carbonero. Trezeguet entered at the beginning of the second half, replacing Ezequiel Ponce .
Trezeguet was on loan for a season at Newell's.
"It was something incredible, I entered the second half with the Newell's shirt and that match was something special because it was the reunion with the people of River. It was a unique and fantastic demonstration. Today, when I go to Argentina, I go like one more fan ", said the man who knew how to be champion of the World Cup in 1998 with the French National Team.
