Tomás Carlovich is dead, El Trinche was Maradona’s idol

ROSARIO (ARGENTINA) – It is not for everyone to be the idol of the strongest player in the history of football .

Tomás Carlovich , known by all as El Trinche, was seen as Diego Armando Maradona doted on him.

Carlovich was not fast but he was endowed with a monstrous technique , he was an authentic dribblomaniac.

El Trinche died at the age of 74, after two days of coma following the attack he suffered during an attempt to steal his bicycle .

In the late 1960s he started playing football in Rosario Central, but received more recognition during his time at Central Córdoba, with which he achieved promotions in 1973 and 1982.

He also played in the Colón de Santa Fe, with which in 1977 he played his only 3 appearances in the Argentine top flight, in the Independiente Rivadavia and Deportivo Maipú. Carlovich retired permanently in 1986.

During a match between Central Córdoba and Talleres de Remedios de Escalada, a supporter encouraged Carlovich to make a double tunnel, moving the ball first forward and then backward.

This request was immediately met by "El Trinche", causing a huge ovation from his fans in the stands .

This tunnel would repeat many times during his career (source Wikipedia).
