Biography


Victor's career began with his local side Racing de Cordoba before moving to San Lorenzo de Almagro in 1988. His form with the Primera Division club saw him gain international recognition, with one of his two caps for Argentina coming against Brazil in March 1991, with Victor scoring the first equaliser in a 3-3 draw.

He arrived at Tannadice in September 1991 for a reported fee of £350,000 - the second Argentinian to arrive within a few weeks, following the infamous Walter Rojas to Scotland. He made his debut a week later, winning a penalty for United to take the lead in a 2-2 draw with Motherwell at Tannadice. He grabbed his first goal for the Club a week later, against Falkirk at Brockville where he scored twice.

An effective attacking player who appeared regularly in the line-up that season, he unfortunately didn't score as many goals as had been hoped, but his fiery temper certainly grabbed the attention of the United fans. In his second season he was not in the first team as often, and was linked with a move back to Argentina, with a bid by Luna FC rejected. He played mainly in the reserves until he left Tannadice in February 1993 for Mitsubishi, one of the teams in a new Japanese league, for a fee of around £175,000.

Within the year he returned to his home nation, playing for Club Athletico Belgrano, Estudiantes de La Plata, and Talleres de Córdoba before settling at Argentinos Juniors for two seasons. In 1997 he moved to Club Atlético Douglas Haig before retiring in 1998.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Victor was born on this date in Rio Tercero, Argentina.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Victor's career began with his local side Racing de Cordoba before moving to San Lorenzo de Almagro in 1988. His form with the Primera Division club saw him gain international recognition, with one of his two caps for Argentina coming against Brazil in March 1991, with Victor scoring the first equaliser in a 3-3 draw.

  • Naturally, the main interest centred round the first appearance of Argentinian striker Victor Ferreyra. His introduction to Scottish Football was typical. In the first minute he controlled the ball on his chest, only to be immediately bundled off the ball by a defender. However, it was Duncan Ferguson who was held down by Chris McCart to earn us the first of two penalties during the match. Duncan took the kick himself, but unfortunately screwed his shot well wide of the post. United fans first sight of Victor Ferreyra in real action saw the Argentinian speed past Philliben only to be brought down by Billy Thomson who protested his innocence too strongly to the referee and was booked. This time skipper Maurice Malpas made no mistake from the spot to score his first goal of the season. Motherwell, however, hit us on the break in the 32nd minute when Dolan's through ball split the defence and Ian Angus ran on to shoot low past Alan Main. Their equality was short-lived, however, because we went back into the lead in the 39th minute. John Clark's free-kick was controlled by Ferreyra but he was tackled and the ball broke to Gary Bollan who immediately fired the ball past Billy Thomson for his first goal for the club.

  • Our 4-0 win at Brockville was not only our biggest win of this season, but the first time we have won a Premier Division encounter by four goals since we defeated Hamilton Accies 5-0 at Douglas Park in January 1989. Obviously, it is also our best return from an away fixture since then and, indeed, is our first success on opponent's territory since a l-0 victory at Love Street last March. Falkirk had four ex-United men in their line-up and as early as the eighth minute one of them Alex Taylor, was yellow-carded for a deliberate body-check on Victor Ferreyra. The opening goal came after 14 minutes when Dave Bowman's persistancy carried him past two Falkirk defenders on the right before sending over an inch perfect cross for Duncan Ferguson to head home his fifth goal of the season at the near post. Former United players in the home ranks continued to figure prominently. First Alex Taylor was injured in a clash with Dave Bowman and had to hobble off with a hip injury shortly afterwards. Then Guido Van De Kamp slipped as he came out for a Neil Duffy cross and Eddie May was literally on hand to palm the ball over the line, though it appeared he could just have easily headed the ball home! The "goal" was instantly chalked off by the referee. Before half-time Victor Ferreyra curled a free-kick past the defensive wall which Westwater only just managed to keep out.

  • After Extra-time our cup record against Rangers is, to say the least, poor, but this was a very close contest and strangely there was little evidence of a titanic battle in prospect at the end of an opening 45 minutes that was by and large an insipid affair. True Ian Ferguson had hit the base of the post, but other than that the half had been devoid of incident.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 0 Airdrie

    Having appeared to have turned the corner with the results against Celtic and Dundee, the lack of creativity in this meeting with Airdrie almost put us back to square one. Indeed, it was Airdrie who enjoyed the better of the early exchanges, but the game soon developed into a pattern of United possession,but little by way of chances being created. About the only exception to that was a John Clark 5 yarder, but Martin kept out his effort. Our cause wasn't helped when Billy McKinlay had to limp off injured. Early in the second period, John O'Neil did breach the Diamonds' defence, but after knocking the ball over Martin's head, his final shot went wide of the target.
