Ronald Garcia Nacho

Ronald Lazaro Garcia Justiniano, nicknamed "Nacho" is a Bolivian defensive midfielder currently playing for Aris Thessaloniki F.C.. He "graduated" from Bolivia's famous football academy called Tahuichi Aguilera located in Santa Cruz, which brought up some popular Bolivian football stars such as Erwin "Platini" Sanchez, Marco Antonio "El Diablo" Etcheverry, Jaime Moreno and some others.

In most of his first season with them he was plagued by several problems. First, his adapting process lasted longer than expected. Second, his from-time-to-time injuries and his longer recoveries, made it difficult for him to become a regular starter. Towards the end of the second division season he gradually started to gain confidence and trust by his coach Nikos Anastopoulos. As a result of a strong campaign from Aris, Nacho along with Aris were promoted to the first division after just 1 year.

In the period of his first season at Aris Nacho was always knocking on the Bolivian national team's door and its starting 11. Finally in 2007, he was capped by the Bolivian National team playing for Copa America 2007 (equivalent to the Euro Cup). In 2007/08 season he finally became an essential, irreplaceable part and core of the Bolivian national team and Aris Thessaloniki. Now, Ronald "Nacho" Garcia, is considered as one of Bolivia's and Aris FC's top and most consistent stars.
