Passion, pride and leaving life in each ball are three of the main characteristics of the average Boca Juniors footballer. We leave you a list of five great footballers who would have been perfectly footwear at the Xeneize club.

The defender emerged in River Plate is still young and has a long career ahead. But he is such a fan of the ‘Millionaire’ that he could never cross paths. There they would idolize their risky game and to the limit, of course.


‘Mustard’ was one of the bravest midfielders that Argentine soccer had. He played throughout his career at River. Would it have worked in Boca? Of course. Sometimes the ball could have passed, but the player could not.

While his gameplay and technique are admirable, his incredible ability to chicanate opponents and polemicize matches is unique. That verbiage is the one that so many fans of the ‘Xeneize’ claim. And for which they also detest it, of course. Let’s not forget that he played in River.

The ‘Piri’ is a skilled side who has more perseverance and sacrifice than technique on his feet. And when he has to go to the floor, he doesn’t hesitate for a second. That which so many Boca fans reproached him for playing rough in the Superclassics with the River shirt, would be the same thing they would flatter him if he belonged to them.

The DNA of Boca Juniors par excellence. The ‘Little Boss’ will never give up a ball for lost and will always content his fans with that sacrificial game that characterized him throughout his career. He left River, he shone in the Argentine team … And he would also have done well in La Bombonera, of course.
