Who is Álvaro Lara?

Álvaro Fabián Lara Saldías was a Chilean footballer who played as a striker. His last club was Rangers de Talca of the Primera B in the 2010 season.

Lara began his football career in Universidad Católica at a very young age, and was promoted to the first adult team in 2004. Two years later, he left the club and in January 2007, Álvaro signed for his local village team Deportes Linares. After an entire season in Third Division with Linares, he was scouted by Deportes Concepción and they signed him the next season. However, despite his performances with the Lions of Ñielol, Lara abandoned the club for financial problems and later he joined Curicó Unido of the Primera B, where he won the promotion title. In 2010, he signed for Rangers, but he was released at the end of the season.
