A striker of the highest order, Carlos Morete was part of the three biggest teams in the country, winning major titles with each. Born in the small town of Munro in Argentina’s Buenos Aires province, Carlos was destined to be one of the top players from the country. With over 250 goals in the Argentine Primera Division, Carlos was one of the most wanted marksmen in the sport.
After coming up through the youth ranks at River Plate, Carlos joined the first team at the age of 18. Two top-scorer titles in 1972 & 1974 were followed by a league title in 1975. Scoring an incredible 103 goals in 195 games for the team, River Plate decided to send Carlos on his way to Las Palmas in the Spanish league. The spell worked just fine as Carlos had 86 goals from his 170-odd games at the club. This was followed by a move to Sevilla in 1980. The move lasted just one season and Carlos ended up mostly on the bench with just 6 goals to show in the 19 games he got.
He was back in Argentina for the remainder of the 1981 season where Boca Juniors picked him up, playing him in 18 games and getting 3 goals out of it. Despite just a short spell with the team, Carlos won the league title with Boca Juniors.
On he moved to Talleres, another giant of the Argentine league and had a remarkable season with 20 goals in an equal number of games. Independiente, seeing his performance towards the later stages of his career, decided that it was time to pick him up for an encore and brought him in for two seasons that saw the club win the championship. 26 goals in 59 games later, Carlos moved to Argentinos Juniors where he played just 32 games in three seasons, mostly coming on as a substitute. Despite scoring just 5 goals, Morete brought in loads of experience in training sessions & games, thus helping the team win two back-to-back titles as well as the 1985 edition of the prestigious Copa Libertadores.
At the International level, Morete was only ever called up twice for the national team and despite scoring once in those two games, things never worked out for him.
