Anybody knows why this horrible player, whom'll probably make the WC squad is called El Fantasma?

El Fantasma translates into The Phantom or The Ghost. And like a ghost, you might catch a glimpse of Chamot on the pitch, but the way he plays these days it seems like he is not really there.

Is he not also called "el flaco" (the thin) or something similar?

HIS REAL NICKNAME IS EL FLACO.

in his good days he was not bad at all, but his good days are over.
he was very versatile, playing as right or left back and as centre defender. but most people will not remember his good times.

he played in great teams like lazio, atletico de madrid and now milan. not anyone can play in such teams.

I am the one who gave Chamot the Nickname El Fantasma for the exact reasons Tim gave.

I do remember him in '94 (when he was good) and '98 (when he was good but slow) now when he plays for a team, they are with 10 players instead of 11.

Why was his original name el flaco?

Thanks SZeppelin75
