Pablo Solari, the new jewel of the river: his beginnings and why he didn’t play in the workshops

As he reached the River Plate, Pablo Cesare Solari has not ceased to amaze. Based on goals, great performances and an abstract forged from his own name (named after Pablo César Aimer), “El Pibe” slowly won over River Plate fans.

Born on 22 March 2001, aged only 21, he took the starting spot in Marcelo Gallardo’s squad and broke it for the Argentine Cup with a third in a 4–0 win against Defense and Justice at Chaco. But, before reaching the aristocracy, there was a youth who dreamed of making his debut in Toleres.

Solari is from St. Louis, Arizona, and made his first guns at a club in his hometown. At the age of 8 he was tried in “El Milo”, but it did not happen. Later, he went to Velez de General Pico in La Pampa. Out of pure sacrifice and love for the ball, he covered 150 kms for training. There he was noticed by the coordinator of the inferior Sebastian Pat, who took him to Velez in Linears, but he did not stay. Later, he moved to the Jardin neighborhood of Córdoba to join the lower divisions of “T”. Another phase began for “Publito”.

Walter Lemma saw him in Toleres, who later guided him to the Albíazul reserve and is one of the people who know him best in football. in dialogue series 3Gustavo Quinteros’ current assistant at Colo de Chile recalls that time.

“I met Pablo when he directed Workshop Reserve, because he had a big youth following. I met him in the sixth division, playing as a winger or second striker, and the following year he was a division forward increased,” he said.

Solari was later promoted to the Primera de la “T” squad when the coach was Alexander “El Kasic” Medina, but did not make his debut in a team that had other senior and experienced forwards. In this regard, Lemma said: “Even when I was in reserve I could not aspire to play in the First Division because I was a boy; I was growing up.”

“Later, already in the first division, I don’t know what the coach saw (for Medina) or what Pablo showed, but it is something that can happen to any coach,” he said. Mentioning that he was not given the minutes in “El Matador” and then the player exploded both in Colo Colo and now in the river.

Lemma left “T” and moved to the Chilean club, which was fighting relegation in a complicated situation. “I missed him and he didn’t sign a form on Toleres’ professional staff. So, I recommended him to Colo Colo,” he recalled.

“I am not surprised by some of Pablo’s attitude, as he was a second striker or center forward, not a winger. He has fluid speed in the second point position, handles both the profile well and as a centre-forward as well. Speed ​​does. It’s something that he had so naturally, that he came from the club where he grew up,” he said.

Solari broke it down into the most important institution in the Trans-Andean country and River put it on their radar. In “El Milo”, he has scored 7 goals in 8 games. And history, which could not be written in Talares due to the whim of fate, now seems to be dressed in red and white.
