FULL NAME :   FEDERICO JULIAN FAZIO

 

Born on 17th March 1987 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Height : -  1.95m  (6' 5")

Weight : -  - kgs    (st lbs)

 

 
Federico Fazio came to Spurs as a Europa League winner and club captain of Sevilla, where he spent seven years, ending up as the La Liga side's captain.

A strapping 6' 5" tall, he wass dominant in the air and aggressive on the floor, with his height an asset at both ends of the pitch when he was with Sevilla, buyt unfortunately, he never looked at home in the Premier League.

The defender was only 18 years old when he was handed his professional debut for Argentine second division side Ferro Carril Oeste in 2005, while he was studying medicine for 18 months before deciding on football as his future career.

His impressive performances for his club and for his country in the 2007 World Under-20 Cup saw him move to Spanish side Sevilla for around 600,000 and Federico started with their second team, Sevilla Atletico to ease him into his new surroundings.  In his first season, the side won promotion to the Spanish Second division and in August 2007, Federico made his first appearance in the senior side, being handed a start in the Spanish Supercup against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu stadium.  Sevilla won the two legged affair 6-3 and Rico had his first senior silverware.

At the same time, he was starring in the Argentina Under-18 side that won the World Cup for that age group and in 2008 they went on to take the Olympic title.  He went on to make the senior team, but won few caps with a lot of competition for places in the Argentine defence.

Fazio went on to become a stalwart of the Sevilla side and captain the team to the Spanish Cup and the Europa League in his seven years with Sevilla, but his move to White Hart Lane rankled with the club chairman, who subsequently banned him from the stadium for life.

Eighteen months with the Spurs first team saw him sent off twice and only played 31 times in all competitions.  His lack of awareness and pace cost him his place at the club, with teams picking him out as the weak link in the Tottenham back four,  Decent enough in the air, it was a surprise that he was so unable to cope with the different style of football in England and despite his former President's ban, he returned to Sevilla on loan in January 2016 until the end of the season, where he was sent off in his first match.  However, he did pick up another Europa League winners medal with his former club.

Returning to London and ousted by the arrival of Toby Alderweireld, Federico was touted around Europe on loan and he went on a season long loan to AS Roma.
