BOGHOSSIAN JOINS THE RED BULLS.
Uruguayan striker moves from Argentina to Salzburg. Red Bull Salzburg confirm signing of a striker: 23-year-old Joaquín Boghossian, 1 m 97cm, from Newell’s Old Boys.
Uruguay were the surprise package of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, with the exceptional striking talents of Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez firing them to the semi final.
One of Uruguay’s best striking talents is now to join the Red Bulls: Antonio Joaquín Boghossian, a Uruguayan under-20 international, is to join Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg.
The Montevideo born striker with Armenian roots is 23 years old and an imposing 1m 97 cm tall. The well-built and athletic striker joins from Newell’s Old Boys of the Argentinean Primera Division.
Previous players at this club include such stars of the game as Diego Maradona, Gabriel Batistuta, Jorge Valdano, Lionel Messi and Gabriel Heinze.
Until his move to Argentina in 2009 the striker had scored 23 goals in 55 Uruguayan league games. Following his move to the Old Boys ‘Boghoooool’ continued his good scoring form by netting 17 goals in 34 matches.
Antonio Joaquín Boghossian has signed a four-year contract with the Austrian champions and could make his debut in this Saturday’s West Austrian derby, as Red Bull Salzburg face Wacker Innsbruck. He will wear the number 43 on his back for the Red Bulls.
Boghossian will also be available for selection in next week Champions League qualifier against Omonia Nicosia.
