Come on, kids!

This is the Argentine team that has the most young players in their professional squad. Again, the kids save the rags.


Far away was the famous “ seed of the world ” of Argentinos Juniors.  It's not some big team , with its huge talent hunting structures across the country, either.  The team that had the most kids on their squad during the last season was Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba .

The International Center for Sports Studies, known as CIES, conducted a study  of 1292 clubs in 93 different leagues around the world . The aim was to find out which teams have the most kids in their  squad . That is , how many players under 21 had minutes on the court until January 2020. 

 Godoy Cruz is the club that gave the most minutes to their  U21  players during 2019 in our country. Tomba is the leader with 22% and behind appear Lanús (20.7%) and Huracán (20%). 

At the other end, Aldosivi (1.9%), Atletico Tucumán (1.7%) and Arsenal (1%) close the table. With regard to the big five, Boca has 15.3% of its squad formed by young people; San Lorenzo, 14.8%;  River , 11.7%; Racing, 7.4%; and finally, Independent, with 3.9%.

The U21 players that Godoy Cruz used during 2019 were as follows: Juan Brunetta (22), Tomás Badaloni (20), Valentín Burgoa (19), Marcelo Freites (21), Sebastián Lomónaco (21), Agustín Manzur (19), Ezekiel Bullaude (19), Agustín Alvarez (20), Luca Pizarro (22), Zaid Romero (20), Enzo Ybañez (21), Franco Gonzalez (21) and Joaquín Bolado (22).

 The kids aren't the bottom ones. 

It is important to note that this study does not talk about the use of  players  from the bottom of each club, but simply about the presence of children under 21 years of age in the teams. Many times, as in the case of Tomba, this is not because many players in the divisional have debuted, but because the team focuses on hiring young and cheap players.

Either way, the kids rule on the Express.
