“Carreto has been a role model in years in which football has not been a sport of glory, as is the case now,” Pele said in his various accounts on social media.
A Argentina acaba de perder um dos maiores goleiros de sua história. Carrizo foi um exemplo de jogador nos anos que o futebol era um esporte sem o glamor de hoje. Que Deus projeta sua familia.

Carreto, considered one of the legends of Argentine football, died today at the age of 93 in Rovino, his hometown.
Carreto has guarded River Plate for two decades and won 12 titles with him and was president of the club until the end of 2013. The legendary goalkeeper crowned the Nations Cup with Argentina in Brazil in 1964.
