The eccentric Germán Burgos

Probably many people agree that Argentina has one of the most powerful national teams in the world. It is possible to wager on all its matches by visiting the 1xBet tz website. However, while many of the best players in the world come from that country, their goalkeepers aren’t usually considered among the best.

During the 1990s and 2000s, there was an Argentinian goalkeeper who, while not among the best in the world, was quite an eccentric one. We are talking about Germán Burgos. Also known as El Mono Burgos, which literally means The Monkey Burgos, he was a goalkeeper that had a 15-year long career.

Burgos was known for his eccentricities when playing. He was instantly recognizable due to the fact that he had very long hair and always wore a jockey. Also, he had many “curious” ways to block shots aimed at his goals. He punched many balls away without even moving his body. Also, there were many occasions when he saved shots with his own face. The tz 1xBet betting platform can be used at any moment for wagering on the best goalkeepers in the world.

A career in Argentina and Spain

Burgos played professionally between 1989 and 2004. He spent his entire career between Argentinian and Spanish football teams. The leagues of these two countries are featured at the 1xBet app Tanzania, where punters can make their best wagers.

The teams that enjoyed the eccentricities of El Mono were:

  • Ferro Carril Oeste;
  • River Plate;
  • Mallorca;
  • and Atlético Madrid.

One of the first breakthroughs in the career of Burgos was in 1994. At that moment, he was approached by Argentinian giants River Plate. The squad was impressed with his great performances at Ferro Carril Oeste.

River’s bet paid off. The squad won many domestic titles during the late 90s. This was achieved in large part thanks to the defensive solidity of the team. A great part of which can be attributed to Germán Burgos.

This allowed the goalkeeper to move to Spain. In 1999 he was signed by Mallorca. However, his time at the Spanish team wasn’t that easy. For most of the time, he was the second goalkeeper behind fellow Argentinian Leo Franco.

Also, in November of that year, Burgos received an 11-match ban due to an aggression against Manolo Serrano. He was a player of RCD Espanyol at the time.

Fortunately for the Argentinian keeper, he received new opportunities in Spain. In 2001 he was signed by Atlético Madrid, where he played until 2004, and which is also featured in the app provided by 1xBet Tanzania. Here is when a particular episode took place. In 2002, in a Real Madrid vs Atlético Madrid match, Burgos saved a penalty shot by Luis Figo with his nose, breaking it in the process. However, El Mono decided to continue playing, and was crucial in securing a 2-2 draw.
