Pablo Aimar

Pablo Cesar Aimar Giordano is an Argentine footballer who currently plays for Sport Lisboa e Benfica in the Portuguese first division.

Aimar began his ascent to stardom with Club Atletico River Plate, whose first team he joined for the 1997–98 season, after rejecting a place at medical school, and with whom he quickly established himself as one of the best young players in Argentina.

Valencia CF of Spain signed Aimar in January 2001, at a price of 24 million. The purchase proved justified, as Aimar helped lead the team to a first-place finish in 2001–02 (with 33 matches and four goals), as well as to a runners-up finish in the previous seasons's Champions League, being defeated by FC Bayern Munich. Aimar also won the 2004 UEFA Cup, appearing in eight (scoreless) matches during the campaign; this included the final against Olympique de Marseille, where he replaced Francisco Rufete with 30 minutes to go.
