From not scoring a goal in the first division to signing for a European club: who is Gonzalo Sánchez?

Another Peruvian soccer player will play in Europe. This Tuesday, July 5, the F.C. Emmen of the Netherlands announced, surprisingly, the hiring of Gonzalo Sanchez. The striker arrives as a free agent and will be linked to this club for two seasons with the option of extending the link for another year.

Through the website of this squad, President Ronald Lubbers praised the gunner’s footballing qualities. “Gonzalo has had a serious injury and he is a center forward that we give time to. We hope that the potential of him proven in the past will come to fruition,” he stated.

In this note we tell you all the details of the professional career of the young national gunner who will have his first experience abroad and will share the campus with other compatriots such as Miguel Araujo and Fernando Pacheco.

Gonzalo Sanchez is a 22-year-old Italian-Peruvian soccer player who plays as a striker. The artilleryman was trained in the minor divisions of Lima Alliance club where he made his professional debut in 2018.

In his first years in the first team he did not have many opportunities. In the 2020 season, Chilean coach Mario Salas gave him confidence and placed him as a starter in several matches in League 1 and the Copa Libertadores.

However, the ‘9’ did not show a good performance and could not consolidate. In addition, he was part of the intimate squad that dropped sportingly at the end of the campaign.

In 2021, he signed for Alianza Atlético de Sullana, a team in which he was until the middle of this year. Total, Sánchez has played 35 official matches in the first division, in which he has not recorded any goals and only one assist.
