Paco Alcacer Childhood Biography – Early Career Life:
Paco continued to show interest in football as a child. This made his parents consider enrolling their son into the roster of Monte-Sión, a local football club in Torrent, Spain.
Alcacer grew up idolizing Brazilian and Spanish legends, Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima and Raul Gonzalez.
Early on, Paco Alcacer adopted Raul’s style of play thanks to him having the ability to be in the right place at the right time.
As a young footballer, Paco admitted his strength was finishing and not dribbling. He once joked in an interview that every time he practised running with the ball he would end up falling over. In his words…
“I know what my strengths are and I try to make the most of them. I know what my style is. I need to be in the box, that’s my workplace.”
However, combining goal scoring tactics of Raul and Ronaldo, Paco acquired the talent for scoring goals which showed early signs he would someday explode.
While it took some players time to refine their finishing, this is not the case of Alcacer who spent his teenage years bulging nets all over Spain and Europe.
Did You Know?… Paco scored 14 times in the 2009/10 European Under-17 Championship including qualifying. This record still stands as at the time of writing.
Paco Alcacer Biography – The Alcacer Family Tragedy:
The 12th day of August 2011 will forever remain the saddest day in Paco Alcacer’s life. That day initially began as a happy day as the goal scavenger netted the third and final goal in a 3–0 friendly win over Roma.
Unfortunately, as he was leaving the Mestalla stadium where he was accompanied by his parents, tragedy struck.
Alcacer’s dad who while walking with his son and wife suddenly collapsed on the pavement after suffering a heart attack. Despite a whopping 30 minutes of efforts by medics to revive him, the 44-year-old passed away.
Painfully, this tragedy happened at the time Paco’s 18 birthday was approaching. More sadly, it was just after the first match of his promotion from junior to senior football with Valencia’s first team.
From that day on, every time Valencia played at home, poor Alcacer would be reminded of the saddest day of his life. Paco once admitted that his family tragedy had forced him to mature quickly. In his words;
“I was hit hard and out of nowhere when I was 18. I couldn’t even say goodbye to my father, it was so tough. It was a family tragedy that forced me to mature quickly”
The death of his dad gave him the strength to keep fighting and try things in a different way. This today has made him a self-confessed scavenger for goals scoring 6 in just 81 minutes (a Bundesliga record) and raising his hands to the sky for his dad.
The rest, as they say, is now history.
