It is really very difficult to find words to be able to give to the family, the friends, the group that he was a member of our institution. Now we just have to face this moment, all together, to be able to move forward as the big family we are, supporting each other. We are all trying to fall, to process what happened.

From Huracán, we send our deepest respects to Brian’s family and friends. Thank you for what you gave us and for defending our shirt with such nobility.”

Brian López had had his first experience as a professional in Canada

Brian lived in a humble neighborhood in the city of Rosario and as a boy he sold flowers in restaurants to help his family. He was a fan of Rosario Central, a club in which he played until the Seventh Division. After being released, he was recruited by Adiur, where they converted him from forward to central midfielder. In that position he was tested and signed by Racing at Sixth Division age.

He climbed up to the Reserve division and at the beginning of 2020 he left for Canada to try his luck at York United, just before the coronavirus pandemic broke out. Once back in the country, he found a place in the so-called country leagues. He had ended up at Huracán de Chabás, a club that competes in the Casildense League where its rival was Sportivo Matienzo de Pujato, where Lionel Scaloni is from.

Among several colleagues who fired him on the networks, the message from the former Racing and Platense player, from Rosario like him, Brian Mansilla (today he plays for Orenburg in Russia) stood out: “Turrito dear, I didn’t get to give you the 9, how many trips We shared Rosario and how many conversations we had. Rest in peace crazy.”
