Garay turns into a“striker”against Real Betis

Valencia CF’s centre back has picked up three goals against Betis

Garay started off playing football at four years of age as a striker and he did not shift his position until he was 13 years old. The positional happened in a training session, the head coach was not happy about Garay’s performance so he told him to occupy that area.

Ezequiel Garay admits that starting off as a striker turned him into an all-rounder because he knows how the strikers move and it gave more vision of play, anticipation…

Since Garay’s arrival from Newell’s to Racing Santander back in December 2005, he has scored  36  goals, 16 of them at Racing( where he was coached by Marcelino), 12 at Benfica, 1 at Real Madrid, 3 at Zenit and 4 at Valencia  CF. Ezequiel got off the mark for Valencia CF against  Real Betis on Matchday 3 (2-3). Real Betis are the side who he has netted more goals against, a total of three. Two at Racing Santander and one at Valencia CF.
