PRIOR Carlos Guerini, a standout for Real Madrid and Argentina, passed away at the age of 74.

The former striker earned three league titles with Real Madrid while playing for a number of prestigious teams.

Before departing Los Blancos in 1979, he played for the team for 85 games, scoring 11 goals. He joined in 1975.

Guerini made an impression for Boca Juniors in Argentina, earning him a transfer to Europe.

Although he also scored 23 goals in 48 games for Belgrano, Malaga decided to sign him after he scored eight goals in 16 games for Boca.

Although he did not make the final team, Guerini, widely known by his nickname Chupete, scored the game-winning goal to send Argentina to the 1974 World Cup.

After his time at Real Madrid ended, the attacker went back to Argentina before quitting football in 1985.

Real Madrid honoured Guerini following his death with a short statement.

It read: “Real Madrid C. F., its president and Board of Directors is deeply saddened by the passing of Carlos Alfredo Guerini, who played for our club between 1975 and 1979.

“Real Madrid extends its condolences and affection to his relatives, clubs, teammates and loved ones.

“Carlos Alfredo Guerini has passed away at 74 years of age. May he rest in peace.”

Belgrano also paid tribute in a statement: “Belgramo regrets the death of Carlos Guerini, one of the most notable forwards who wore our shirt.

“We accompany his family and former colleagues in this moment of pain. Goodbye and thanks for your football, Chupete.”

A fan honoured his memory saying: “A huge player. Left an indelible mark. Our institution must offer a tribute to a symbolic player who left a part of our history for our club. ‘Chupete’ will forever be great.”

Another added: “What a great player. A killer with all the skills. May you rest in peace.”
