To his record turned out such a colorful, had his own reasons. But it could have, of course, only an outstanding football player. Indeed, Argentina's Moreno honored as the best footballer the country of that era, until the great Maradona.

Moreno began in a modest club Estrela de Brandes, "which ended up with fourteen.

Here he received a full football "education", becoming the age of eighteen first-class striker. But his dream, of course, like all the football boys, Argentina, was a big-name "River Plate". Just in time for eighteen years a dream come true, and Moreno, a year later got a solid place in the first team. More than that - was the best among the five attackers.

Witnesses said that he handled the ball superbly, easily Performing great tricks to deceive defenders. Yet he never skimp on passes. It felt great stance partners and predicted that they would do next. Nevertheless, he scored more than anyone else, and very beautiful.

Moreno played the position left wing, but the coaches saw in him a rather "free artist". Therefore, it is often shifted to the position of the central striker.

He was twenty years old when he first became the top scorer in Argentina. He went on to be named three consecutive seasons. In the twenty years as its first invited to the national team of Argentina in match against Uruguay - the eternal rival.

At that time, Argentina's national team has been unusually strong.

Contemporaries compared her powerful attack with a hurricane, sweeping away everything in its path. It is likely, it could be the first time in its history to become world champion. Approached the championship in 1938, passing in France. But at the same time in Europe has noticeably breezed winds approaching Second World War. Therefore, the Argentine national team, as well as Uruguay's national team in Paris has chosen not to go. True, the team ventured to Brazil on a trip overseas, but took only third place. A champion is known to be the second time in a row was the Italian team.

But in 1941, Argentina's national team became the champion of South America. The following year, 1942, however, she was second, losing to their bitter rivals Uruguay. But personally, Moreno was something to be proud. At the league, Argentines have won a fantastic victory over Team Ecuador 12:0, 5 goals and recorded at his own expense Jose Moreno.

A distant war in Europe was for South America consequences: FIFA could not rigorously oversee how the contracts are respected players in distant, overseas clubs.

And the best South American players the opportunity to travel around quite freely across the continent in search of places where the best get paid.

In 1944 he left his "River Plate" and Moreno, going to Mexico - there is then paid the best. Speaking of light character, and perhaps of self-confidence of the great football player, shows a curious fact. Appearing at a Mexican club, Real Espana, he easily had promised: if the first season the club will not lead to victory, next will play without pay.

But Real Madrid Espana easily won the championship in 1945, and Moreno became the idol of the fans of football. True, at the end of 1946, after the Second World War, when FIFA once again took everything under control, Moreno had to return to his native River Plate work under contract.

But the main wanderings he had come. Soon broke out in Argentina's famous football players' strike, demanding higher wages. As a result, many of them left the country. Moreno was in the Chilean club Universidad Catolica. Here he is, as always, perfectly played and a lot of scoring. In 1949, the great player he became the champion of Chile.

And then he played in clubs around the world.

He returned to his homeland to play in the annual Boca Juniors. Then he went to Chile, "Universidad Catolica", but also lived there only a year. He moved to Montevideo to spend two years in the Uruguayan club Defensor. " Again he returned to his homeland - in a minor club Ferrocarril Oeste "went to Rio de Janeiro, briefly played in the club Vasco da Gama. That was in 1954. Moreno was thirty-eight years.

In the same year he was in Colombia in the club Independiente. Here he stayed for three years. Two of them are club, and with it, and Moreno became the champion of the country.

Motley fate of this restless man continued as a coach. His first experience was a native Chilean "Universidad Catolica". Experience, which began in 1957, lasted two years. Then, presumably, he was drawn to genuine home if he suddenly found himself coach of Boca Juniors. More than that - in 1959, Moreno even headed for Argentina. However, very short period.

But his fate had taken another unexpected turn: in early 1960, he suddenly was back in the Colombian club Independiente in a role player. However, he was already knocked forty-four years, and on the field, he appeared a few times.

May 14, 1961 hosted a farewell match great football player. "Independiente played with the club Boca Juniors, made a special trip to Colombia. Argentines have won 5:2, but lost both goals scored by Jose Moreno. These were the last goals of the great football player.

Continued his career as a coach - he led a number of clubs, but without much success. But this was a fantastic life so completely unexpected turn: Moreno was married to actress and successfully co-starred in several films. More than that - one of them he directed. Here truly is true: Talented people around the talented.

Still in the early 1970's this wonderful man found that it was time to rest. Last years of his life he was ill and died in 1978. Just as in his native Argentina took the world championship, and the Argentine national team in the finals won the Dutch team 3:1.
