Buenos Aires to Sunderland isn’t a particularly well-trodden path, but it’s one that Julio Arca is forever grateful for taking.
Arca was just 19 when he made a career-defining move across the world, to a new continent and culture quite different from his own.
He didn’t know much about the city or the club when he first arrived, but he grew to love life in the North East of England.
