Dear WTFoot fans, welcome at the profile of El Pipita! He was born in Brest (France) and lived there un till he was ten years old.

Despite the fact that Gonzalo does not speak any French, he still retains the French citizenship in addition to his Argentine nationality. Anyway, he started to play football in Argentina, where he joined the youth academy of River Plate in 1997. He made his debut for the first team in a 2-1 defeat versus Gimnasia y Esgrima on 29 May 2005. He was still very young but already scored 5 goals in 12 appearances during the 2005-06 season.
