Gabriel Omar Batistuta(Reconquista, February 1, 1969) is an Argentinian former soccer player. He played more than four hundred (413) league matches, hitting goal 246 times. At the age of 36 he ended his professional career. His nicknames are Batigol and Il Gordo. Batistuta was an international in the Argentina national football team from 1991 to 2002, scoring 56 times for the national team. With that, he was the all-time top scorer for the Argentina national team until Lionel Messi passed him on November 16, 2016. Batistuta played in his native country for Newell’s Old Boys (1988/89), River Plate (1989/90) and arch-rival Boca Juniors (1990/1991). The striker then left for the Italian Fiorentina, which paid 4.6 million guilders for the attacker. He made his Serie A debut on September 1, 1991, in the match against Juventus (1-0). Batistuta spent nine seasons in Florence before leaving for AS Roma in the summer of 2000. Through this transition, he hoped to achieve what Fiorentina had failed to achieve: conquering the Italian title. It turned out to be the right choice, because with Batistuta Roma took the Scudetto (for the first time in eighteen years). The Argentinian was good for twenty goals in that competition and thus made an important contribution to the title. After the championship year, however, things went downhill for Batistuta. After half a season on loan at Internazionale in 2003, he ended up with Al-Arabi in Qatar, scoring 25 goals in one season. During the 2004/05 season, the Argentine striker ended his career in December.
