The new era of Boca in command of Sebastián Battaglia continues to be linked to youth, and in the last hours it was confirmed that Vicente Taborda signed his first contract with the club. The 20-year-old, who had already made his debut in the first against Banfield, sealed their bond until 2025.
The story of Vicente Taborda, the youth who signed his first contract in Boca
The native of Gualeguaychú, Entre Ríos, came to the institution more than a decade ago. Was discovered by Norberto Madurga and Roberto Madoery, who worked in the catchment area with Horacio Garcia, and that they had traveled to be able to do tests with guys in the ’98 category. However, rumors about a future promise from 2001 called them out, and they organized a game, a chop in a little field to be able to see it.
“He had goals, dribbling, technique”, Madoery recalled his first impression after seeing him play. He was small, but with a very promising future in football. It was thus, that despite not having gone to look for players of that age, They decided to take him to Boca to do the inferiors there.
However, from his history stands out the fantastic memory he has with Juan roman riquelme: it was just his first days at the club, and he had to be relegated due to a stomachache. It was there when the ten appeared and approached him to say: “You are going to be good because you have very big legs.” And 11 years later, from one of the Florencio Sola boxes, he he applauded when he made his debut against the Drill.
The winger’s career that shone in the South and in the duel against San Lorenzo in La Bombonera, had some ups and downs: it started out as hitch, then it became nine, to finally -by necessity- end up playing on the wings.
