Club career

Ustari arrived in Club Atlético Independiente's youth system at the age of 14. The untimely deaths of club players Emiliano Molina and Lucas Molina (both playing in his position) propelled him to the first team sooner than expected,[1] and he made his first division debut on 5 October 2005, in a 2–0 win against Newell's Old Boys, remaining first-choice with the Avellaneda side in the following tournaments, under both Jorge Burruchaga and Miguel Ángel Santoro (both former players with the club, the latter also a goalkeeper).

On 10 June 2007, Ustari scored from a penalty kick against Quilmes Atlético Club, also leaving the pitch injured and going on to miss the year's Copa América. One month later, he signed for Getafe CF in La Liga for 8 million,[2] teaming up with compatriot - and goalkeeper - Roberto Abbondanzieri; his official debut came on 26 September 2007, in a 1–2 loss at Valencia CF.

Ustari struggled during his spell with the Madrid outfit, due to inconsistent performances and several injury problems.[3][4]

International career

Ustari played all the matches for the Argentine under-20 team that won the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in the Netherlands.[5]

On 15 May 2006, he was named by senior side coach José Pekerman - his former manager in the national youth teams - for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, alongside future Getafe teammate Abbondanzieri, being an unused squad member.

Ustari also started the victorious campaign of the under-23s at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing,[5] but suffered a severe foot injury in the quarterfinals against Holland, being sidelined for eight months.[6]

Personal

Along with his native Argentine, Ustari also hold the Italian passport, so he could play football in Europe with non-EU status.

On 20 March 2007, Ustari married the daughter of Ricardo Giusti. A midfielder, he played 11 years with Independiente, and won the 1986 World Cup with the national team.
