Maximiliano Roditis grew up in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was the son of an Argentinean mother and a Greek immigrant who taught his children Greek culture and traditions. At a young age he began to play soccer and often went to watch his favorite team Boca Juniors. At the age of 18 he became a professional soccer player in the Argentinian league. As fate would have it at the age of 20 he was recruited by a 1st division Greek soccer team and traveled to Athens to play. His Greek father was overcome with pride and happiness.
