Mario is the inspiration behind Lautaro’s football career
Growing up, Lautaro looked up to his father and accompanied him to matches.
Lautaro, in an interview, said he not only lived in Bahia but also in Punta Alta and Olavarria because they followed his old man (his father) with his mother and two brothers.
