Ariel Silvio Zárate Riga (born 13 July 1973 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine retired footballer who played mainly as a forward.

Only having made his debuts in the first division in his own country well past his 30's, he spent the vast majority of his professional career in Spain, mainly with Málaga, which he represented in three full La Liga seasons.

Football career

After completing Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield's youth divisions, Zárate began playing professionally in Mexico with Club Toluca. He then had a stint with lowly Riccione Calcio of Italy and spent seven years in Spain, with Cádiz CF, Málaga CF (helping the Andalusia side achieve La Liga promotion in 1999), Elche CF and Xerez CD.

Subsequently, Zárate returned to Argentina, playing for modest outfits Club Deportivo Morón, Club Social y Deportivo Tristán Suárez and All Boys, helping the latter to the Primera B Metropolitana championship in his first season.

As All Boys returned to the top division in 2010 after an absence of nearly 40 years, he made his debuts in the competition in a match against Racing Club de Avellaneda, for the season's Apertura.


Zárate has three brothers, all footballers: younger Rolando and Mauro and older Sergio, with all of them eventually representing the Argentine national team.[1]
