Club career

Club Atlético Peñarol

Nicknamed El Mosky or El Jet Álvarez (The Jet Alvarez), he was linked to the Uruguayan club when he was 24.[2] Uruguayan Peñarol was champion in 2003 after winning the Clausura finals against Nacional and hand coach Diego Aguirre. In that team unquestioned right side Honduran Edgar Alvarez was, who had come to the club after playing seven seasons at Deportivo Platense in his country.[3] The player was considered by Diego Aguirre as important in his scheme.[4]

A.S. Roma

After a successful loan period, A.S. Roma paid €1.5 million to Peñarol, but immediately loaned him to Messina and granted the club an option to buy him for €1.9 million. He signed a 5-year contract.

After spending the 2006–07 season at Messina Álvarez returned to Roma. At the summer transfer period AS Roma bought Mauro Esposito and Álvarez decided to leave Roma for Livorno, who maintained an option to buy him for €2 million.[5] He left Roma due to the surplus of right midfielders. After spending the 2007–08 season at Livorno, Alvarez returned to Roma, and spent a full pre-season with the club, But he was loaned for the 2008–09 season to Pisa on 1 September 2008.

F.C. Bari 1908

In 2009, he moved to Bari, on a permanent basis. The first year with the pugliesi turned out well. Under the guidance of Giampiero Ventura Álvarez became one of the best wings in Serie A. The second year did not turn out as well though and the club finished the season in last, moving to Serie B. Over two years Álvarez played in 65 league games, scoring 4 goals.

U.S. Città di Palermo

On 31 August 2011 Álvarez moved to Palermo as the player agreed to a two-year contract with the club.

FC Dinamo București

In July 2012, he moved to Liga I side Dinamo București and later signed a one-year contract with the Romanian side.[6] He played only five games for Dinamo, his evolution being marred by his injuries. His contract was ended by mutual consent in December 2012.

Playing style

Álvarez is known for his searing pace and acceleration, both on and off the ball. He is also very agile, making him very difficult for defenders to mark.

International career

Álvarez played at the 1999 World Youth Cup and made his senior debut for Honduras in a 2001 UNCAF Nations Cup match against Panama, coming on as a second-half substitute for Mauricio Sabillón. As of July 2012, has earned 51 caps, scoring 3 goals. He has represented his country in 10 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[7] and played at the 2001[8] and 2003 UNCAF Nations Cups[9] as well as at the 2003[10] and 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cups.[11] But most importantly, he was part of the 2010 FIFA World Cup squad and played in two matches.

2005–06 A.S. Roma season

The 2005–06 season saw Associazione Sportiva Roma experience several ups and downs, as it went through periods of poor form which bracketed a then-record 11 match winning streak in Serie A. Despite this period of excellent form, the club originally finished just fifth in the final standings, before Juventus, Milan and Fiorentina all were declared of varying guilt in a scandal that rocked Italian football in the summer of 2006. The resulting point deductions directed toward all three aforementioned clubs promoted Roma to second in the final standings.

The season also saw Roma hit with a one-year transfer ban, since it poached Philippe Mexès from Auxerre in spite of a rolling contract in 2004. Before the axe fell, Roma had already made its summer signings Doni, Samuel Kuffour, Rodrigo Taddei and Shabani Nonda, which made the ban redundant. It did however, delay Antonio Cassano's long-awaited transfer to Real Madrid, which lifted the morale of the squad following Cassano's long-time public feud with captain Francesco Totti.

2007–08 A.S. Roma season

During the 2007–08 season Associazione Sportiva Roma played the 75th Serie A season in its history.

As in the previous season, Roma finished in second place in Serie A behind Internazionale, but had the chance to win the Championship until the last match.

Further, because giallorossi won the 2006–07 Coppa Italia, they played the Supercoppa Italiana for the second consecutive time against Inter, and won the trophy thanks to a 1–0 victory in the first match of the season in San Siro.

In the European competitions, Roma played 2007–08 UEFA Champions League and, starting from the group stage, beat Real Madrid in the Round of 16, but lost to the eventual champions Manchester United in the quarter-finals.

The last match of the season was the 2007–08 Coppa Italia final against Internazionale, the fourth consecutive final between the two teams. The giallorossi won 2–1, their ninth Coppa Italia triumph.

2008–09 A.S. Roma season

The 2008–09 season was Associazione Sportiva Roma's 76th season in Serie A. The club competed in four competitions; domestically, Roma finished a disappointing 6th, after three consecutive second-place finishes. They began the season by losing the Supercoppa Italiana to Inter, who also eliminated Roma in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

Having finished 2nd the previous season, Roma qualified automatically to the group stage of the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League. Roma managed to finish top of their group, but were eliminated in the round of 16 by English club Arsenal in a penalty shoot-out.

2009–10 A.S. Roma season

The 2009–10 season was Associazione Sportiva Roma's 77th season in Serie A. The club competed in Serie A, the Coppa Italia, and the UEFA Europa League. Roma finished second in Serie A with 80 points, two points behind Inter.

In the previous season, Roma achieved sixth place in Serie A and qualified for the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League starting from the third qualifying round.
