"I don't know his whereabouts": Ruben Darío Insua and his curious response about the Chilean Ibacache


After the victory against Sarmiento, the DT of San Lorenzo was asked about the defender. He had permission to travel to his country, but he did not return on the agreed date.

The name of

Alex Ibacache

began to gain strength for

San Lorenzo

in the last days of 2022, and with the arrival of the new year, the Cyclone closed its incorporation on loan until December 2023 and with a purchase option.

However, since his arrival,

the 24-year-old Chilean winger hasn't added a minute with the Barça shirt.

In the first two games, against Arsenal and Lanús,

he could not be there because San Lorenzo still did not have the authorization.

The papers just arrived in the preview of the match against

Godoy Cruz

, although in the end

Ruben Darío Insua

did not take it into account either.

And his situation became even more complicated last week, when

Ibacache requested permission to travel to Chile to resolve family matters.

Although both the club and Insua accepted the request

and gave him a few days off so he could return to his country, the full-back did not return within the established period.

Alex Ibacache, the day of the signing.

During the week,

Matías Caruzzo referred to the issue and confirmed that the winger had asked for more time due to the "seriousness of the problem"


But this Monday, in a conference, Insua was blunt when asked about the player's situation: "

The Ibacache boy, the last day he trained was Tuesday, from then on I don't know his whereabouts."

The phrase of the DT of the Cyclone resounded loudly in San Lorenzo and in Chile and

it is not ruled out that the end of his relationship with the club is finally decided.

Who is Ibacache?

The departure of Nicolás Fernández Mercau forced San Lorenzo to look for a player in the left lane of the defense to replace him and it was there that the name of


appeared .

A 24-year-old Chilean winger who played for Everton in his country.

Despite his youth, he already has a more than interesting career: in 2019 he was on loan at Cobreloa, although he did not have much participation and the following year he went to Curicó Unido.

Where he played the most was in his club and in total in his career he already has more than 100 games in the First Division, eight of which were for international cups: four in the South American Cup and four in the Libertadores.

“I have an aggressive game, I have a lot of attitude when I enter the field.

I am a player who has a good physique, who steps on both areas, ”Ibacache said in an interview with the official press of the Barça team.

“At first I thought it was just a poll, I took it easy.

When they told me there was a formal offer, I was very happy.

I wanted it to be resolved very quickly," the player confessed.

The performances of Ibacache, who was born in Quillota, gave him the chance to play for his national team:

he was part of the squad that competed in the 2019 South American Under 20 and in 2020 he played the Pre-Olympic


For his part, in the Major, Eduardo Berizzo summoned him for the tour of Asia that La Roja did in the middle of this year.

Thus, in the first days of January 2023, the full-back

closed his signing on loan until December of this year, with a purchase option,

and became the first reinforcement of San Lorenzo in this market.

And although he immediately went to work under the orders of Insua, he missed the first two games because San Lorenzo did not yet have the qualification and was only available to face Godoy Cruz, although he was not among those called up.
