Biography of Joaquín Bogossian

Uruguayan Footballer of Armenian Descent

Joaquín Bogossian is a Uruguayan footballer of Armenian descent, currently playing as a forward for the club "Cerro" on loan to "Arsenal" (Sarandí). He was born in Montevideo on June 19, 1987, where he also began his career with the club "Cerro". In 2005, he made his debut in the top division and four years later, due to his great talent and scoring abilities, he moved to Argentina. In the 2009 Uruguayan Primera División, he scored 23 goals in 55 matches and helped "Cerro" qualify for the Copa Libertadores through the Copa Artigas, becoming their top scorer. In 2009, he transferred to "Newell's Old Boys". In the Argentine championship, Bogossian scored 11 goals in 18 matches, becoming the team's top scorer and one of the best in the league.

A Beloved Striker

This Uruguayan forward of Armenian descent won the love of fans for his outstanding heading ability and excellent goal-scoring instincts.

Move to Red Bull Salzburg

In the summer of 2010, after a loan spell at "Newell's Old Boys," Bogossian moved to Austrian champions "Red Bull Salzburg," signing a four-year contract with the club. However, during his season in Salzburg, Bogossian did not show the same level of activity as he had in his previous club. He only scored one goal in 18 matches. Therefore, the management decided to send him out on loan.

Interest from Other Clubs

Clubs such as Paraguayan "Olimpia," Uruguayan "Nacional," and Greek "PAOK" showed interest in acquiring Bogossian's services. Later, there were reports from Uruguayan media suggesting that the player was more likely to join PAOK. The club offered €350,000 and a one-year contract with the same salary that Bogossian received at Red Bull. However, this information turned out to be inaccurate, and Bogossian eventually joined "Nacional."

International Career

In 2007, Bogossian played for the Uruguayan U-20 national team. He did not make it into the senior Uruguayan national team due to strong competition from forwards such as Diego Forlán, Luis Suárez, and Edinson Cavani. According to Bogossian, if the head coach of the Uruguayan national team does not call him up for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, he would play for the Armenian national team.
