This Monday, forward Juan Emilio Fernández Chávez joined Federico Giulianelli’s team, who until a few days ago wore Comodoro Rivadavia’s Gymnastics and Fencing jacket in the National League.
Fernández Chávez, who turned 30 on Friday, April 30, is a highly performing player with an excellent hand that provides solutions from the perimeter as well as having the ability to defend a larger player from the same position. In 36 games this season he averaged 6.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 23.9 minutes per game.
This 1.98-meter forward made his debut in 2008 at Libertad de Sunchales where he completed six seasons with the team before moving to Quimsa for the 2014/15 edition, being part of Silvio Santander’s brilliant team that won the Super 8 and the League of that season. . Then, he fell back to Lanús and later to arrive at Gimnasia de Comodoro in 2016. After a year in the Patagonian Green, his destination was Atenas de Córdoba where for two seasons he joined the Greek squad. From there he emigrated to Chile, where he wore the Universidad Católica jersey and then returned to Libertad in the 2019/20 league edition. In the midst of a pandemic during 2020, he agreed to return to Comodoro Gymnastics for the current National League.
The one born in the Buenos Aires city of Coronel Suárez arrives to replace Patricio Pirani, who leaves the team due to injury despite the fact that the Spaniard made a huge effort to be at the service of the team playing undercover in his last two matches. Patricio’s predisposition towards his teammates and the coaching staff is appreciated.
The brand new reinforcement was already qualified to play this Tuesday against Gimnasia y Esgrima de Rosario.
