Biography


Adrian progressed through the youth system at Argentinian Primera Division side Club Atlético Banfield in Buenos Aires, making his debut in the final match of the Primera B Nacional 2013-14 season. His first team debut came in August 2016, in a Copa Sudamericana match against San Lorenzo. The left back went on to make nearly 70 appearances for the club over the next three seasons, and although an attacking full-back, grabbed only the one goal during that time.

Identified by United through the Clubs new scouting process, his capture was announced in June 2019, with the defender signing a three year deal. He made his first appearance in a United jersey in a pre-season friendly against Brechin City.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Adrián was born on this date in Centenario, Argentina.

  • Dundee United met Hearts for the first time in three and a half years in this Betfred League Cup encounter. Last time the two sides met was a thrilling Christmas period encounter back in 2015 that saw the Edinburgh side come out 3-2 on top. Manager Robbie Neilson gave starting positions to three of his new signings. Shankland, Adrian and Liam Smith were all starting, with Adam King and newly re-signed goalkeeper Deniz Mehmet on the bench.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Adrian progressed through the youth system at Argentinian Primera Division side Club Atlético Banfield in Buenos Aires, making his debut in the final match of the Primera B Nacional 2013-14 season. His first team debut came in August 2016, in a Copa Sudamericana match against San Lorenzo. The left back went on to make nearly 70 appearances for the club over the next three seasons, and although an attacking full-back, grabbed only the one goal during that time.

  • United claimed the first real chance of the game in the twelfth minute with academy graduate Scott Banks crossing the ball into Shankland who struck the ball from inside the penalty box. Unfortunately, the keeper was there to parry the ball. United won a further corner in the 20th minute, the ball falling to Clark who went for the incredible with his bicycle kick being deflected out for another corner, leading to Shankland heading the ball just wide of the post from seven yards out. Adrián Sporle took United ahead in the 27th minute of the game scoring his first goal for the Club, cushioning the ball into the back of the net, being assisted by Shankland. Scott Banks stood out throughout the first half being unlucky to fire just wide of the mark in the 32nd minute. Cowdenbeath keeper Dabrowski was also stretched to save Banks’s top corner attempt from outside the box just two minutes later. Dabrowski continued to play well for Cowdenbeath after another long-range effort from Shankland was saved in the centre of the goal with five minutes to go in the first half.

  • United were dealt a blow prior to kick off with Calum Butcher missing out through injury and Sam Stanton came back in to replace him. That was the only change to the line-up that started the mauling of Morton last Saturday.
