Matías Cóccaro He spoke this Thursday about his arrival at Huracán de Parque Patricios. In the program 100% Sport (Radio Sport 890), the 23-year-old Uruguayan forward commented that he will have to serve a week of quarantine in a hotel in Buenos Aires and that his illusion is to be in order for the game against River on Sunday, August 1, for the fourth date of the Argentine tournament.
The attacker stated: “I get a loan with a charge for one year, until July 2022. When coach Kudelka was in Union, he had had some rapprochement, it was to the taste of the coach, and now he had the opportunity to reach Huracán. Personally, I was looking for a more competitive league than the Uruguayan one, and I think it’s a game system that is going to help me a lot, so I hope the best is given ”.
“Going to Argentina means growing in every way, including economically. The conditions of my departure also served Montevideo City Torque. Torque’s idea was for some players to stay six more months, I was with that idea too, but when this possibility of coming to Huracán came up, I wanted to have a rematch in Argentina and I think this is my rematch, ”said Cóccaro. .
The powerful center-forward recalled that in 2018 he had a stint at Atlético Tucumán: “At that time I did not know how to take advantage of the opportunity, I was very young, capable of making many mistakes, now I am much more mature and I will try to take advantage of this Hurricane opportunity to the fullest ”.
The Uruguayan regretted having to do a mandatory seven-day quarantine: “When you arrive at a new club you already want to train, demonstrate and play, but hey, it’s part of a process and you have to take it that way. I am juggling so that they let me go to train, the idea would be to be in order for the game against River at the Monumental by date 4, which will be played on Sunday August 1st ”.
Cóccaro, who drew attention in Uruguay for his power and his unique mustache, was born on November 15, 1997 in the town of Pirarajá (department of Lavalleja). At the age of 14 and in order to continue his studies, he moved to the city of Minas, where he worked in a lumberyard and distributing refrigerators.
After playing in the first of Lavalleja Fútbol Club since he was 15 years old, he traveled to Montevideo to be part of the process of the Uruguayan Under-20 National Team in 2016, where he coincided with Rodrigo Bentancur and Nico de la Cruz, among others. From the interior football he went to the youth team of Cagliari in Italy, then he was in Mouscron in Belgium and returned to South America to join Atlético Tucumán.
In 2018 he returned to Uruguay, signing for Rampla Juniors, then Villa Teresa and in 2019 he arrived in Torque: “At the time I was not very clear about going to Montevideo City Torque because I was having a good time in Villa Teresa, but I made the decision and in sports we did very well, with several players who have had the opportunity to go abroad and others who are currently analyzing different proposals, “said the forward who at the end of 2020 was received as a public auctioneer (appraiser).
