Pastore's rough debut in Qatar: he played 30 minutes, was sent off for a violent kick and his team was thrashed


After passing through Elche in Spain, the Argentine midfielder who played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa had an ill-fated presentation at the Qatar Sports Club. Look at the video.

Without continuity in Elche,

Spanish club with which he

played just seven games in all of 2022

(in none of them did he complete 90 minutes), Argentine midfielder 

Javier Pastore

sought new directions for his career and landed in this last transfer market at

Qatar Sports Club.

El Flaco, the one who dazzled in

Ángel Cappa



and who went to Europe as a great promise, put an end to his adventure in the Old Continent without achieving everything expected of him, although he also accumulated 269 appearances with the shirt of the powerful

Paris Saint Germain

and played in the

2010 World Cup in South Africa. 

Today, at 33, he chose the money route and went to Qatari football.

And he debuted this Sunday.

His team faced, as a visitor, Al-Markhiya for date 13 of the local tournament. 

Pastore had a day to forget:

he entered early in the second half, was sent off after 79 minutes of play and his team lost 4-0.

He started off on the right foot.

Yes, with the right one with which he struck a violent iron on the left ankle of Talal Al Shila, the rival's number '8'.

Pastore, the third Argentine in the Qatari league along with Matías Nani (Al-Shamal) and Sergio Vittor (Al-Sailiya), terminated his contract with Elche (he had signed until June 30) since he was not going to be taken into account in the team chaired by Cristian Bragarnik.

He was in Qatar as one more Argentine fan during the World Cup and arranged the link with his new club.

Beyond the setback of his debut, he is one of the great figures of Qatari football and a large part of the Qatar Sports Club's hopes of qualifying for the next AFC Champions League (the Asian Champions League) rest on him.

The team that also has Javi Martínez, the world champion midfielder with Spain and a long-term player in Bayern Munich, is in fourth place, tied with the third (Al-Sadd) who is the last one who would be qualifying for the team today. continental contest.
