Matias Vecino

Matias Vecino was born on August 24 1991 at Canelones in Uruguay. He started his professional career with Central Español where he played for a year before signing for Nacional in 2011. He stayed a couple of years, winning a championship in 2011-12.

In 2013 he signed for Fiorentina, but in his first six months he played very little, just seven appearances. He was therefore loaned to Cagliari for the rest of the season but still had limited playing time. In 2014 he was sent to Empoli, his first encounter with manager Maurizio Sarri. Empoli did very well, avoiding relegation with many months to spare. He returned to Fiorentina and in two seasons made 78 appearances with six goals.

In 2017 he signed for Inter. He played in Milan for five seasons, 127 games with 13 goals. Despite a few problems with manager Antonio Conte and a long injury, he won a scudetto in 2020-21, a Coppa Italia in 2021-22 and a Super Coppa in 2021.

In 2022 he signed for Lazio as a free agent, chosen personally by Sarri. He has made a good contribution to the Lazio cause with 82 appearances and 10 goals.

At International level he has 69 caps for Uruguay with four goals. He was part of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup squad and played the Copa America in 2021.

Vecino is an excellent player who can play in any role in midfield, including playmaker. He is a good header of the ball and has an excellent and powerful shot.
