    I don't know very much Spanish, but it doesn't make sense.... here it says "Pocho" means....


    n. an Americanized person or thing of Mexican origin, including Americanized Mexican Spanish

    How does that apply to Lavezzi when A) Hes Argentine, not Mexican B) He has nothing to do with the USA.... maybe there are some Spanish speakers that know?

    I remember them saying that it meant "loco" crazy because of his shirt number. It's like the Italian version where every number has a given meaning, for example 13 is Saint Anthony.

    I remember during coppa America they called Cabiasso "el Cucho" all the time, wonder what that means.

    Vincenzo Sivaio da Avellino: Vorrei chiedere a Lavezzi cosa significa Pocho, il suo soprannome.
    «Pocho non ha nessun significato particolare, non si può tradurre in italiano: è semplicemente un soprannome affettuoso. La traduzione nell’italiano fulmine? Non c’entra niente».

    it means nothing

    That's ironic that he was interviewed about his name after we've been looking.
