DID YOU KNOW ?

Gago, Sergio Agüero, and Lionel Messi was teammates as youngsters. Together, the three of them won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2005.

He earned the nickname "El Pintita" when Ramón Maddoni scolded him for playing with his hair. Also, his Boca Juniors teammates would call him so because his youth squad coach would scold him "stop painting and run!".

Gago came from the youth divisions of Boca Juniors and made his professional debut with Boca in the 1-0 victory over Quilmes on December 5, 2004.

Fernando Gago is a literature and art enthusiast. The first thing he did after landing in Spain was to visit the Museo del Prado.
