Ariel Nahuelpán, the brand new reinforcement of Mazatlán FC, who previously went to Halftime
Today he scores goals and hopes to meet them again as a reinforcement of Mazatlán FC, but to live these benefits of life, Ariel Nahuelpán had to ‘get’ him in all aspects; the now gunboat striker recalled that, at some point in his life, he dedicated himself to masonry in Argentina.
What was Nahuelpán’s childhood like in Argentina?
Life was not easy for him. born in Buenos Aires, who due to the economic problems that his family was going through had to divide his time in childhood; in the morning he helped his father Juan with the masonry and in the afternoon he coached soccer.
“Yes, as an assistant (I worked as a masonry). I helped him, we had to work at that moment, I gave the old man a hand; He shook my hand at his time and now I shake his hand, so he’s a very good guy, a hard worker, like my mom. It is beautiful to be a grateful son and for my children to see it, to give them that example, to help their elders when needed,” Nahuelpán recalled in an interview with halftime.
“My dad was a bricklayer. He was actually his assistant, he did everything. But well, I learned something, not much; From there I did not leave soccer, I was always linked to sport. After that I went to Nueva Chicago, I was able to grow in the lower ranks, and after two and a half years I made my debut against Boca Juniors, in the First Division”.

How did Nahuelpán start in soccer?
Several years of this double work were rewarded, when In 2006 Ariel Nahuelpán debuted with Nueva Chicago and for 2008 he went to Coritiba in Brazil.
“What happens is that I helped him in the morning-afternoon, and from there I went to train; always linked to sport. At night or late he would play and/or train. Later I had to leave him, because I entered the inferiors, I went to the Chicago boarding house. It was in the Fifth Division, second year of the Fourth and I made my debut”, added the South American attacker.
Just as he was a bricklayer, Nahuelpán also made ‘Baby Fut’ in Argentinaa soccer format, but with five players and similar to the indoor one.
“While I was playing indoor soccer, baby soccer, I was also in Argentinos Juniors and he played a field of 11. Like all the boys. He plays baby and then in the 11’s, we did that. I was always linked to soccer, at some point I had to help my dad, but always playing the baby. I was growing, I didn’t play on the 11-a-side court for 3 years, but I played baby, a little bigger”.
Ariel Nahuelpan He is a guy who measures 1.90, imposing; tattooed and tough-looking, but “I’m a calm guy, appearances are sometimes deceiving; I’m very calm off the field. Inside you always want to win, you’re at a thousand revolutions, sometimes you get too excited.”
But it counts more: “I come from a very hard-working family, both from mom and dad., and that must also be instilled in the children. I am a warrior, a fighter for life who always tries to be a good guy, a good person, and that is what stays. One then withdraws and what remains is the essence, the human being and nothing else.
