Carlos Alberto "Bartolo" Álvarez is a former Argentine soccer player, who developed in the position of center-forward. He is recognized for being Maradona's first partner in the attack. He started footballing in Racing de Avellaneda in 1973 where he remained until 1975. In 1975 he was transferred to the Argentinos Juniors club where he played alongside Maradona, who on 10 scored the 1977 metropolitan scorer with 25 goals, his good level in the bug earned him the transfer to Boca . His time in the bug left a record of 100 games and 53 goals. At Xeneize he had many chances to play but was never able to demonstrate the level he previously had in Argentinos. This earned him a frustrated pass that had already arranged his incorporation to Barcelona in Ecuador, when a telegram was received from the leaders of that club saying that the bank that financed the operation denied the funds. His time at Boca Juniors left 2 titles on record, the Intercontinental in 1977 and the Libertadores in 1978, 60 games and 15 goals. His next club was Independiente in 1980, in 1981 he had a few leaks through different clubs including Unión de Santa Fe, Gimnasia y Tiro de Salta, Newell's, Nueva Chicago and his last team was CA Banfield where he retired.
