Ramiro Funes Mori is an Argentine international defender who plays club football for Villarreal. Born on 1st July 1991, Funes Mori moved to the USA with his parents as a child but returned to Argentina to join River Plate at youth level in 2001. He progressed to the senior squad in 2010 and made his league debut in March 2012 – going on to lift six trophies with River, including the 2015 Copa Libertadores title, where he scored in the second leg of the final against Tigres. Under a month after that victory, the powerful defender had signed for Everton in a £9.5m deal. In a successful first season in England he reached the League Cup semi-final, where he scored in defeat to Manchester City, and was selected for the Argentina squad for the Copa América Centenario 2016 where he featured in all six games, including the final penalty shoot-out defeat to Chile.
