Name: Cristhian Alexander Arango Paredes
Age; 20 (20/01/1991)
Position; right midfield/wing.
Club: Sarmeinto Lora Academy
Cristhian is one of the star players we have at the Sarmiento Lora academy that I represent in Cali, Colombia. In fact, Cristhian Arango was one of the players chosen to participate in theTV reality show “Cracks” organised by Zinedine Zidane and Enzo Francescolli. However, due to problems with his visa application (it was presented late by the programme organisers!!), he could not be there on time and consequently lost out on a fantastic opportunity. Atletico Madrid has also expressed an interest in seeing Cristhian Arango closer over a couple of weeks and invited him over at our convenience – something we are still considering until the new manager is in place at the Calderon.
Cristhian Arango is a well-gifted right-sided midfield player, with good technical ability and decent pace. He can run at opposition and has an excellent cross. He has a good level of work on the pitch, and like all our players at Sarmiento Lora, he has excellent tactical knowledge and awareness.
Another of our young stars to keep an eye out for!
