Pablo Mari Identifies Flamengo Libertadores Win As Career Highlight
Arsenal defender Pablo Mari says winning the Copa Libertadores with Flamengo was the highlight of his career to date.
The Spaniard joined the Gunners on loan from Flamengo in January, whom he joined from Manchester City last July.
Mari formed part of a Fla defence that went on to comfortably win the Brasileirão title and the Copa Libertadores too.
The Rio club won in dramatic circumstances, beating River Plate with a pair of last minute goals from Gabriel Barbosa overturned a 1-0 deficit.
Mari says the final in Lima was the highlight of his career to date, which has taken in spells at Girona and Deportivo La Coruna.
“I’ve had some great moments in my career as a player – promotions, play-offs... I won two titles in Brazil, which was amazing,” he told Arsenal.com.
“Playing at the Maracana... I’ve had some great moments in every year of my career and I’m fond of many of them. Right now I think the ultimate was winning the Copa Libertadores.”
