Newell’s have a reputation as one of the top producers of young talent in Argentina. Players from the club’s youths who have represented Argentina at World Cups are Gabriel Batistuta, Américo Gallego, Jorge Valdano, Gabriel Heinze, Roberto Sensini, Mauricio Pocchettino and Maxi Rodríguez, among others. Ezeqiuel “El Tanque” Ponce is the next one tipped to shine on world stage. He was a real goal machine at “La Lepra” youth ranks and thanks to that manager Alfredo Berti gave him a chance to debut in th first team – it took place on 5th October 2013 in a league fixture against Quilmes, in which he replaced Fabian Munoz after 88 minutes becoming the youngest player ever to play in Quilmes senior team.



“It was the best thing that happened to me.”
