• Cristian 'Kily' González started out with local club Rosario Central before moving to Buenos Aires and spending one season with Boca Juniors.
• Exported his talents to Europe in 1996, joining Spanish club Zaragoza, where he settled quickly and became one of the Liga's most eye-catching left-wingers, making 92 league appearances in three seasons and scoring 15 goals.
• The highpoint of his career came during a four-season spell at Valencia, with whom he reached two UEFA Champions League finals – appearing from the first whistle to the last in both – and won the 2001/02 Liga title.
• An Argentinan international for a decade, from 1995-2005, he appeared at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and won Olympic gold at the 2004 Athens games; also played in the Copa América tournaments of 1999 and 2004, finishing runner-up in the latter.
• Followed ex-Valencia coach Héctor Cúper to Inter in 2003 and spent three years with the club, winning Serie A (by default) in his final season before returning to Argentina and first club Rosario Central.
