Life has not been easy at all for Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, a footballer who lives the best moment of his career at Juventus in Turin, where he is one of the club’s benchmarks.

The Colombian was uncovered in a chat on Instagram Live with the writer and singer Marcos Brunet. Cuadrado gave details of how he had to fight to become what he is today.

Juan Guillermo said that he “endured hunger” and that River Plate and Boca Juniors rejected him when he was just a young man seeking to succeed in football.

“I was in Argentina for a while trying for various teams, where the doors were closed and I even endured hunger,” recalled the 33-year-old footballer.

In 2006 Cuadrado wanted to try his luck at Boca Juniors and River Plate, the two biggest teams in Argentina, but was unsuccessful.

However, he also failed to convince Nueva Chicago and Tiro Federal de Rosario, which at that time were seeking to settle in the first division.

At that time luck was not with him either and due to a managerial disagreement a test for El Porvenir, a club that was in the third division, was frustrated.

With her bags packed, she had to return to her native Colombia: “It was a blessing; I came from Argentina, I presented the tests and I managed to stay within the professional team of Medellín ”, he explained.
